Product Overview

On a mission to solve a 43-year-old mystery for the sheriff's department in Bisbee, Arizona, the author recalls his family's treasure seeking ventures. He visits the property his parents once owned where some old human remains were found buried in jars. He recalls where the idea of a treasure that was buried on the property originated. His research takes him back to the early 1860s, to the adventures and perils of ten-year-old John Henry Hughes and his father, Jesse. After uncovering a treasure outside of Yorktown, Virginia, they lose the treasure to three thieves. Devastated by the loss, Jesse threatens to kill himself. John Henry pleads with Jesse not to kill himself and makes a lasting promise to his father that he will find a treasure for him. While treasure-seeking in Kansas, John Henry meets Wyatt Earp. Later in Colorado, Wyatt confides in John Henry and tells him where he can find four treasures in Arizona. After several years of trying to buy or rent the four properties, John Henry rents the O.K. Stables in Bisbee. Inside the stables, he finds the Wells Fargo lock that points the way to where he finds the first of four treasures. Two disgruntled former employees, along with a notorious outlaw, return to harm John Henry. He ends up in a hangman's noose with the noose getting tighter and tighter around his neck.
