Book Details

Find your hidden Treasure

Several years have passed since Forrest Fenn released his memoir, The Thrill of the Chase. In his book he tells of a bronze treasure chest which he hid somewhere in the Rocky Mountains north of Santa Fe, NM. Since it was released, thousands of treasure hunters and adventurers have been searching for this hidden treasure. His memoir includes a poem with nine clues; unlock the clues and follow the directions precisely and it will lead you to the treasure. If you find it, he says he will give you title to the gold. If you dream of riches and would like a challenge then this book will give you a head start. This book was Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite. He writes: A Treasure More Than Gold is itself a treasure indeed. I had a marvelous time reading this book and found myself looking up one thing after another on Google. I had not been familiar with Forrest Fenn and his hidden treasure before I read this. I enjoyed seeing how Ritt worked at deciphering the clues and particularly liked his short-cut approach to finding the Blaze. I was awestruck by the beauty of the area as seen in his photographs. The value of this search is more than that of the treasure itself. The adventure itself seems so grand.

 

Book Excerpt

Forrest mentioned that the clues in the poem are contiguous and that he was not playing any games, the poem’s clues were difficult, but not impossible. So I kept researching the internet and reading the poem many times, there was a line in the poem that bothered me; it was like a tiny buzzing gnat that keeps pestering you. It was annoying to say the least. A word just didn’t seem to fit, it seemed out of place or awkward to me. I kept going back to that line trying to understand why he used that particular word. That particular word is in the 3rd line of the 4th..stanza. -------------------------------------------- You may see the book reviews from Readers' Favorite at this URL: https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/a-treasure-more-than-gold
