Publisher's Summary

This is the true story of the Clevenger family from Arizona Territory, and their unfortunate events as they trekked north to Washington Territory. Once the old, cantankerous Sam Clevenger and his wife, Charlotte, hired Frank Willson and John Johnson to help with the move, their fate took a dark turn. These true events were documented by journalists through the 1887 trial and well into the 1900s, and stories have been told of Sam's unfound treasure for nearly 130 years. But this is the first detailed, documented, and vetted account of their bizarre and fascinating tale.

Strange Tale of a Very Mean Man

Clevenger Gold was a good enough story, but I found myself just shaking my head about the hatefulness of Sam Clevenger and his unnecessary cruelty . . . which ultimately brought about its own consequences . . . the book was short, but actually could have been told in even less time . . . I love historical fiction . . . but there wasn't quite enough meat on the bones of this one for me . . . the best part was the unexpected ending . . .

Great story

This is a great story and was told in a very captivating way. Kept my interest from start to finish. I know the locations of this story quite well as I live in AZ. Now I want to go find the treasure. Everyone will enjoy this story and the skill of the author in telling it.
