In the vast Sonoran wastland, about twenty miles east of
Phoenix, mighty granite mountains rise some four thousand feet above the desert
floor. The Superstitions are the center of mystery and legend, tales that date
from the Conquestidor to the lone miner and his burro. Today, it is said that
these legends, old maps, and stone tablets hold the key to hidden treasures.
Many have tried, and more than a few have lost their lives,
in their search for the secrets of these forboding mountains. Still others have
adapted and distorted history in their attempts to tell the stories of the
Spanish mines and the Dutchman's lost gold.
Here, in these pages, I will guide you through the path of
history and present to you, now, the lost mines of the past . . . uncovered!
