Book Description


   Clay Morgan and four friends, born and raised in the city of Los Angeles decide to have an adventure by going in search of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine in the deadliest area of the United States - the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. Anything that can happen, does happen to these men. They encounter life threatening situations from nature, the terrain, wild animals, and even man. When wealthy rancher Paul Rockford discovers them near his marijuana farm high in the mountains, he sets out to scare them back to the city. When they don't scare, he decides to kill them. They manage to get to the sheriff, only to discover he is in cahoots with Rockford. Watching from the sideline is one tough and deadly lady, Big Alice Hatfield, saloon/brothel owner at the base of the mountains, who is determined to have the Lost Dutchman for herself. Their adventure quickly becomes a struggle for survival. FROM THE PUBLISHER A great action/adventure fiction, this book follows five men hunting for gold who learn that life in the wilderness is nothing at all like life in the city of Los Angeles where they were born and raised. On this adventure, readers will see them evolve from the scared greenhorns they were into tough confident men. I believe Greenhorns and Killer Mountains will lead you on a similar adventure through those deadly mountains while in the coolness and safety of your home. FROM THE AUTHOR As I do in all my writings, both nonfiction and novels, I wrote Greenhorns and Killer Mountains using my experiences as a police investigator, a private detective and a treasure hunter. Over the years, in my visits to the Superstition Mountains, located on the outskirts of Apache Junction, Arizona, and in my readings about them, I have learned that many mysterious and deadly incidents have occurred in them over the past 150 years to adventurous men and women obsessed with finding the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine. This gold mine was owned by Jacob Waltz, aka, the Dutchman
