I really enjoyed reading this book.

People have searched for the Lost Dutchman mine in the Superstition Mountains for over 100 years.

This book brings to life the "old dutchman" himself - Jacob Waltz. This is important because Wells provides a colorful narrative of Waltz, and the people he knew. This provides some fascinating context for the book's discussions of the many people who have searched for the Lost Dutchman Mine.

The book has dozens of photographs of the actual area surrounding the Superstition Mountains, as well as the Tonto National Forest and the Old Apache trail.

At the end is a complete bibliography, and, a helpful listing of websites (with working hyperlinks) for additional information for anyone visiting the area.

This book is an easy read and very enjoyable.

I have been hiking in the footpaths of the Lost Dutchman, his mine, and the Dutchman hunters for more than 20 years. I am happy to have discovered HUNTING OLD SNOWBEARD'S GOLD by Eleanor Mell. It's a great read, full of information ( a lot of it new ) and a proud addition to my substantial collection of Superstition Mountain books. I highly recommend it.

This short title has some pretty fascinating information and is fairly well told. I'd recommend the first half to anyone. The second half becomes what seems like a rush though modern attempts to find gold, without much attention to storytelling.

I couldn't get to 20% of this book. Normally, even when I land on a poorly written book, I try to get to reading 50% of it.

Formatting is awful. A few thumbnail pictures, but really didn't add to anything.

Don't waste your time, money, or space on the cloud on this one.
