Some favorites from my collection: The Killer Mountains, by Curt Gentry; The Lost Dutchman Mine Of Jacob Waltz Part 1: The Golden Dream, and The Lost Dutchman Mine Of Jacob Waltz Part 2: The Holmes Manuscript, both by T.E. Glover; and Superstition Mountain: A Ride Through Time, by James Swanson and Tom Kollenborn.rally_toad wrote:Have you read any interesting books that you would reccomend?
Maybe Jake was a generous guy. Perhaps too generous. He did give Julia Thomas money to pay off her debts. As far as dying a pauper, he was supposed to have died with a box full of gold ore under his bed, that Mr. Holmes ended up with. Too much time has passed to find out the full story on Waltz, so this will probably be a mystery forever.matt gilbert wrote:I think Waltz high graded ore from some of the prescott area mines he worked and hid it in the supes, he probably spent most of it on booze and hookers. Why else would he have died a pauper? I also think that after all the deaths that have resulted from people looking for that (or other) gold in the mountains makes anyone who goes out looking for it crazy. I gotta say, if I did find gold out there, I would never admit it to anyone. I wouldn't even try to cash in on it. Too much bad karma.
There's too many other reasons to hike in the supes, gold is the last thing on my mind.

All you have to do is read about two pages, you won't be able to put it down. Just like Glover's.djui5 wrote:I would like to that add that you MUST read Sims Ely's book "The Lost Dutchman Mine".
