How to Hunt Buried Treasure by James M. DeemDo you want to strike it rich and find lots of treasure? It's not as easy as it seems.  Sometimes treasure-hunters get lucky, sometimes they make mistakes.  Occasionally, a clever treasure-hunter will do some hard work and dig up a treasure that took years to track down.

I always wanted to find treasure myself, especially some pirate treasure. I remember one morning, when I was in third grade, an adventure I created for myself. I went to our backyard with a shovel and dug many holes around our big oak tree. I was looking for a pirates' treasure chest, and I was sure they had buried one under our tree. Of course, I never stopped to think that we lived 700 miles from the ocean-- hardly a distance that pirates would travel overland. So I struck out. But I had fun looking (and filling in the holes later!).

 

Here are six treasure stories that appear in my book How to Hunt Buried Treasure. Maybe they'll help you find some treasure.

Treasure Story 1: The Ghost Town Treasure

Treasure Story 2: The Red River Treasure

Treasure Story 3: The Lost Treasure of the Bighorn River

Treasure Story 4: Hunting for the Donner Party

Treasure Story 5: Treasure of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine

Treasure Story 6: The Missing Treasure of Clifford, Colorado
