From the Publisher

The dusty trails heading west of the Mississippi provided intrigue, adventure, and danger for the men and women who set out in search of a new life and fortune.

The Great Plains region loaded with history from native Americans, Spanish explorers, and Mexican, German, and Scots-Irish settlers holds some of the country''s most promising finds for buried treasure.

From Our Editors

His eight previous volumes in the Buried Treasures series explored hidden splendors from the Appalanchians to the Pacific Northwest.

Now, in these three new books, Jameson reveals the secrets of lost wealth from New England, down to the Atlantic Coast, and across the Great Plains.

Stories in these collections range from the time of colonization ("Bloody Tew's Lost Gold" and "Joseph Braddish's Secret Cache") and the Revolutionary War ("The Benedict Arnold Treasure" and "Marie Antoinette's Diamond Necklace") to the days of marauding pirates on the high seas ("Blackbeard's Isles of Shoals Treasure" and "The Lady Pirate's Marsh Mystery") to Civil War-era riches ("A Rebel Soldier's Treasure Tale" and "The Lost Union Army Treasure") and hidden outlaw stashes on the Great Plains ("The Dalton Gang Lott" and "Bill Doolin's Outlaw Gold").

Armchair adventurers of all ages will devour these terrific tales of forgotten war loots, sunken treasures, outlaw hordes, jinxed ships, and cursed money. They'll ride the waves with swindling swashbucklers, saddle up with the Texas Rangers, and dig for lost immigrant catches among the dangers of the Wild West.

Each volume contains a glossary of geological and geographical terms

Appropriate for ages: 8 - 8
