About the Book

If you are interested in treasure hunts and want to learn about a fascinating outlaw, this book can open the door to your next hunt while satisfying your craving to learn about the past. Mark Williams, an experienced treasure hunter, examines the life of George Weightman, aka “Red Buck,” who was a well-known outlaw in Oklahoma territory from 1890 to 1896. He focuses on Red Buck hiding an estimated $8,000, answering questions such as: • Just who was Red Buck? • How much money did he gain from outlaw activities? • Is there any proof that he was ever in Childress County, Texas? The author concludes that Red Buck was unquestionably a real person who operated outside the law for personal gain. He committed crimes not only in the Oklahoma Indian Territory but also in the Oklahoma Territory and the state of Texas. The gang Red Buck rode with—the Doolin Gang—was also known as the Wild Bunch. He participated in most of the gang’s robberies. Join the author as he explores the life of a fascinating outlaw and seeks to determine if there is a buried treasure waiting to be found in Childress County, Texas.
