Treasure Under Your Feet
My latest podcast is a short review of one of the classic books in the field of treasure hunting.
Roy Volker was a prospector, a diver, and a professional treasure hunter.
Dick Richmond was a newspaper writer and a good friend of Roy's.
Together, they wrote a classic book on treasure hunting. Short but packed with great advice, TREASURE UNDER YOUR FEET came out in 1974.
The book consists of 26 chapters covering all aspects of treasure hunting, from coinshooting to relics to sunken ships to ghost towns. Eight of the chapters were written by "guest experts," so you're getting ten authors here for the price of one.
Long out of print but easy to find on the internet, this book will whet your appetite for your next hunt.

Good job Dan bringing up an oldie but a goodie. It's in my treasure library. Now, if I just had every treasure book ever written, one of my goals in life would be complete!

Every treasure book ever written? That would require quite a warehouse!
But I'll bet with some research you could come up with a list of a dozen or so "must-have" books.
Give it a shot!

1st book I owned. Given to me years ago, before I was really into MDing. Good book, I love glancing through it now and "laughing" at the machines they used back in the day.
