Format: Paperback
It's fun to think that there might be mountains full of treasure in your own backyard. Alas, I don't believe many of Boren's claims that these mountains exist. This book gives some informative historical information, and seems to all add up at times, yet, sometimes Boren's claims are laugh-out-loud silly. Boren gives a detailed account of one trip he took to a series of caverns filled with ancient treasure. Does anyone really believe this? If he is telling the truth, then a million questions immediately surface. If he's lying, then readers have to wonder what he has to gain from his lies. Money? Boren is locked tight in a Utah prison and won't be getting out anytime soon. I thought it was funny how Boren seemed to be related to every historical character he mentions in his book. He claims to be related to early Mormon church leaders, but also claims to be related to Utah Native American leaders. Hmmmm...interesting family there. I bet they have some wild family reunions. Boren also claims to be related to an ancient explorer of the Americas. I don't even know how he can justify this, because the man's very existence is barely recorded. Boren seems obsessed with writing himself into the legend of the gold. I guess being related to all these different people is the easiest way to do it. Reading about all the treasure that allegedly exists in the mountains of Utah is entertaining, but Boren has some serious credibility issues.

The Gold of Carre-Shinob is at the most very interesting reading. There are fantastic stories of long lost mines and Spanish gold in the mountains of Utah. But as far as being historically accurate, well... Boren seems to favor re-writing bits of history here and there throughout the book to support his tales. Read this book not for its historical accuracy, but rather for its intrigue and adventure.

Even though Boren is an experienced writer, and a good one at that, he embellishes his books to the point where they are no longer a reliable source of information. He has embellished the truth so much so, that this book is nothing short of a ficticious tale. Anyone who would use this book to aide them in a search for the Lost Rhoades Mine, or the fabled Shin-Ob is running after a ghost. Mr. Boren also invented the Shin-Ob, as well as the word "Towats" to mean "The Great Sprit". Towats means "Man" nothing else. This book is great for the fire place.

The book comes from the co-writer of a very respected, and well regarded work Footprints in the Wilderness. I think he should have stuck with that credit. The auther is incarcerated and this book feels like a fairy tail. There is some interesting info to be gleaned from both this authors books on Utah mining and history, but this one.... Major suspension of disbelief needed.
