Every since I was a kid I was fascinated by buried treasure, lost mines, etc. I read everything I can on the subject, from the Templars to The lost Dutchman to Pirates to Oak Island. I just read 'Apache Gold.....' again and am about done with 'Coronado's Children'. Been several years since I read it last. Which brings me to Dobie. I have some of his books and they all are great. He lived when the old timers weren't that old and the stories are very entertaining. For a student of the Southwest, these books are a must.
