Barry Storm dedicated his life to finding the lost treasures of the Old West. In Thunder Gods Gold, Storm--born John G. Climenson--takes you along with him on his search in the 1930s for abandoned gold mines, including the famed Lost Dutchman mine in Arizonas Superstition Mountains.
Reading Thunder Gods Gold is the next best thing to being there! A former reporter, Storm was one of the first writers to turn his treasure-seeking adventures into books, and he filled his tale with rich detail, fascinating stories, conversations with other prospectors--including competitors and would-be waylayers--and cliff-hanging action. The book contains numerous clues to help a hopeful treasure-hunter follow Storms lead: photographs, maps, key markers, and a guide to "signs of treasure"--symbols like crosses and arrows, left etched into trees and rocks, used to send secret messages to the next worthy adventurer.
Thunder Gods Gold is such a compelling story of the search for lost mines that Columbia Pictures adapted the book into a movie, the 1949 Western, Lust for Gold, starring Ida Lupino and Glenn Ford.
Storm dedicated Thunder Gods Gold to "the prospector: whose daring enterprise on lonely trails has built and will forever sustain the destiny of a metallic civilization . . . . "
Storms writing is so infectious, even non-believers may find themselves putting on their boots, grabbing a pick-axe, and heading for the hills. Will you be the next adventurer to find the lost mines?
