5.0 out of 5 starsThe Aspermont, TX Spider Rock Treasure Book - The biggest treasure in the US...10 Feb. 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
Written mostly about Spanish gold that was mined in the 1500's or so ( no one really knows) and buried or maybe a number of other sources, buried, and has been searched for ever since.Secret maps in Spanish, Diggings, All focused around small Texas towns within a few miles of the Salt Fork of the Red River as well as in the immediate vicinity of the river itself. Steve outdid himself on this one and you will think so also should you be able to buy a copy - since they are in short supply....
This book exceeds all others on the background of the Spider Rock. Steve is able to draw you into the stories of the Spider Rock. If you're interested in diving deeper into the mystery and history of Spanish gold, look no further than this book. I found it to be a thorough guide to the treasure - complete with maps, photographs and clues into the secrets behind Spider Rock. Enjoy, truly a fascinating read.
The Spider Rock Treasure by Steve Wilson is an excellent account of hidden Spanish treasure! Tantalizing and mysterious clues have been left behind for a treasure yet to be found. A must have book for all who ever dreamed of finding hidden riches.
I certainly enjoyed Steve Wilson's new book, "Spider Rock Treasure: A Texas Mystery of Lost Spanish Gold". The mystery itself and the many unique events that have occured concerning this strange mystery are fascinating, and Wilson has done an excellent job of pulling together a significant amount of history (his bibliogrpahy is very extensive, reflecting many years of careful research). Wilson also weaves into the book some other treasure mysteries which have existed through the years within the same general vicinity of Texas (northwest Texas). My family owns a prominent parcel of land that is within the subject matter of the book, and it is fun for us to have this book about this unique country. There are some interesting historic sites in this country, and it is very good to have that history preserved here in this book. However, the book reflects that many early and even modern day treasure seekers (and many of their names are given in the book)have selfishly and/or unwittingly permanently destoryed historic sites in their personal quests for treasure. Unfortunately, some sites have been confused for sites relating to treasure, when in fact they are simply interesting historic sites. Over the years my family has been frustrated with treasure seekers who have destroyed some of these historic sites (sites such as Indian tepee or prayer rings, which are circles of rocks left by the Plains Indians, which treasure seekers have unwittingly mistaken or assumed had something to do with a treasure and have moved or spread the rocks and dug all around them). Hopefully all those who read this book will enjoy this fascinating and wonderful mystery and will also come away with a desire to appreciate and preserve historic sites, as opposed to disrupting or destroying interesting and/or hisitoric sites, which are be better served explored by professional archeoligists and historians than weekend treasure hunters. Enjoy!
