These 32 tales from "the Backbone of America" include "The Gold Behind the Waterfall" (Arizona), "The Treasure of Deadman Cave" (Colorado), "Lava Cave Cache" (Idaho), "Henry Plummer's Lost Gold" (Montana), "The Curse of the Lost Sheepherder's Mine" (Nevada), "Lost Train Robbery Loot in Cibola County" (New Mexico), "Eighty Ingots in Spanish Gold" (Utah), and "Lost Ledge of Gold" (Wyoming).

Frank Dobie notwithstanding". -- Rocky Mountain NewsLegends from Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming
