This book is approximately 56 pages and filled with interesting history and short stories. I remember hearing interesting ghost/treasure stories as a child while visiting the Colorado area. I recently moved to the Colorado area, and I could not wait to obtain information and books about the area. To my surprise, this was one of the few books that I found. The stories are short and are perfect for story telling. The stories are filled with information to excite the imagination of the possibility that treasure might still be buried in the mountains that has never been retrieved. I probably won't go into the mountains looking for the treasure even though some of the descriptions are pretty clear to where it might be located. However, I think it will make a wonderful conversation piece while driving through the Colorado mountains with family members that are visiting the area. The book is clear and concise and if you are looking for some interesting stories to discuss with tourists or family members this is a great book. Once you start reading it your curiosity won't let you put it down.

This is mostly folk lore, or is it? Great "old time" stories of lost treasure buried in the Colorado Rockies told by someone who was there to capture the heart and soul of the stories from the old timers. A treasure of its own.

If you're looking for the next American masterpiece, this ain't it. What you get is some great tales from a resident of the greatest state in the country. If you want to put some adventure in your life, use this book as a travel guide like we did and set out for some great family fun! One place worth mentioning is the lost treasure near Grand Lake. It is a beautiful resort town and the trail you follow in order to search for the lost treasure mentioned in the book is relatively easy. You get to go on a family outing in God's country that the kids will enjoy and you may even get lucky and stumble onto something. This book is a keeper (actually, we pass it along to friends who love adventures with their families). Skip the Fifty Shades of Grey and read this book. Much more colorful in all the right ways!
