Lost Mines & Buried Treasures of Old Wyoming


If one of these tales leads you to lost treasure, you will have won the lottery. If not, you’ll still come away from the book with a compelling romp through Wyoming folklore.



W.C Jameson, one of the leading experts on treasure hinting in the U.S., now turns his attention to Wyoming’s lost fortunes. With his gift for storytelling, he relates intriguing legends and historical accounts about lost gold, buried payrolls, and hidden strongboxes.

Jameson has written more than 60 books on treasure hunting and served as an advisor to Walt Disney Productions on the National Treasure movies starring Nicholas Cage. An amateur treasure hunter in Texas testified in court that he had found a multi-million dollar lost treasure by using only a copy of one of Jameson’s books and Google Earth for directions.

In this book Jameson takes readers on an adventure to the four corners of Wyoming to investigate the Snake River Pothole Gold, the Hallelujah Gulch Robbery Loot, the Lost Treasure of Big Nose George, the Lost Cabin Gold Mine, Nate Champion’s Lost Treasure, and eleven other action-packed tales.
