The author does a good job of debunking the legend. If you have any doubts about whether the mine exists you probably won't after reading this book. The evidence clearly indicates that the Dutchman's Mine is fiction, not fact.
Whether you will be convinced that there is nothing to the legend, as another reviewer has suggested, is a different question. I am not sure that the book even wants to give that impression. One could equally well conclude that there might have been something up there once -- perhaps before the Dutchman even claimed to find his "mine" -- but that it is almost surely long gone, leaving behind a fantasy fit for con men, crooks, and fools -- and (this is my own excuse) those for whom the fantasy makes it a bit more fun to hike in the Supersitions.
