Nothing stimulates your fantasy genes like plausible stories of lost treasure

There is nothing that will tingle the adventurous side of your psyche like plausible tales of lost gold mines and buried treasure. One of the most interesting newspaper articles that I ever read was one that contained a map of the United States that pinpointed approximate locations of known lost treasures. I clipped the article, kept it in my room and fantasized for some time about going out looking for them. How a boy in his young teen years would be able to pinpoint the location of sunken Spanish treasure ships or search for a lost gold mine were difficulties that I didn't think about a great deal.
This book is a series of short stories about lost mines and the lost treasure from those mines. Like all really good stories about gold and treasure, there is some factual basis, as in actual gold, for each of them. The stories all appeared in a Colorado newspaper, the earliest in the late nineteenth century and the latest in the 1950's. They are fun to read as they really give you an excuse to let your imagination roam and extend these stories down one of many possible pathways. Any attempt to actually search for these lost mines would be extremely difficult, the terrain in most of these locations is extremely rugged so all tools and supplies would have to be packed in. That is of course why the mines remain lost after decades of searching.
