With 30 years on the trail of the Lost Dutchman Mine, Feldman brilliantly unravels the mystery of how this mine vanished from existence 145 years ago. Feldman exposes the first story-tellers of the Lost Dutchman Mine who infamously corrupted the Legend by sending searchers down an unrewarding and dangerous trail to a peak called Weaver's Needle. Owing to their deliberate deception, the search for the truth has been the most difficult treasure hunt of all. Closing the gap between myth and truth, Feldman brings to light the location of the Lost Dutchman Mine with absolute certainty on a lofty ridge in the Superstition Mountains.
