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
