The Wild West was full of legends, gangs, bandits, and outlaws searching for loot, gold, and treasure. Author, performer, and adventurer W. C. Jameson spun the yarns on this audiobook, which he also performs. With the gravelly voice and slight drawl of a cowboy sitting at a campfire Jameson relates legends like, “Belle Star’s Iron Door Treasure", where the spoils of a daring robbery are lost forever behind an unmovable door; the tale of notorious Sam Bass, who became bored with working as a cowhand, blew his money, and turned outlaw; and many more daring adventures that will spark the imagination and entertain young listeners.
W.C. Jameson takes his listeners back to a time when the six-gun was king, life was cheap, and many a bandit died before recovering his stolen loot. Jameson, a folklorist, musician, and environmentalist, has been on close to 200 expeditions for lost stashes of gold, silver, or other treasures. You'll hear: "Belle Starr's Iron Door Treasure", "The Lost Sam Bass Loot", "Lost James Gang Treasure in Arkansas", "Tragedy and Treasure in Happy Bend", "Black Jack Christian's Lost New Mexican Loot", "Mississippi Train Robbery Gold", "Outlaw Skinner's Buried Gold", and "Natchez Trace Treasure."
For Ages Eight to Adult.
