Lost Dutchman is supposed to be a mine that has been lost in the Superstition Mountains.. and never found.

Hey Sue,

Here is a pretty crappy picture of mine. The signature looks legit to me. Great find. It is a really great book.

The hard back version is hard to come by but the paper back is the common one

I really don't know myself, I've only had one of the hardback books myself which I sent to a good friend as a gift several years ago as they needed it more than I did

i have seen these range in price from 35 to 120 dollars-- a good price would be 60 to 70-- and they are VERY hard to find-- over 12 years of collecting , i have managed to find only 5

Dale is right.  These books are few and far between.  I have another book by Ben Green.  It is from seven years earlier.  I picked it up because it looks so much like the Legacy book.  It is a history of Tennessee Walking Horses and The Celebration in Shelbyville.

On a hunch, I started digging through the Walking Horse book looking for a particular name.  The name of a man that traded horses and mules during prohibition.  And then, there it was.....
