My dad bought this book when I was a kid. I still have his worn copy on my shelf, and I have shared it with my own kids and hope they may share it with theirs. Not only does this book offer some fascinating legends of lost treasures and mines in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, but it gives a jumping-off point for studying American history beginning with Lewis and Clark. My dad took my family on road trips to visit the locations in this book, which helped to make the history lessons more relevant. ...more

This is an interesting compilation of lost treasures of the west coast. It was written over fifty years ago, but I googled some of the stories and they are still compelling today. The author has a folksy style that makes this a fun read, especially if you are familiar with the places mentioned in the book. She presents the mysteries chronologically, so those interested in the history of this region might also find this book interesting.

“Stories which have failed either to become popular folk lore or to be embalmed in old newspaper files are in great danger of oblivion. If they are saved, often it is by the merest chance. And that chance may well depend upon one individual with a treasure-story bent and a retentive memory.” 0 likes
