    Larry Poynter did a bunch of research. I haven't kept up with his work, but I have one of his more recent books with the manuscript in it, The Bandit Invincible.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    There's probably enough info in that one book to copy enough to make twenty of your books.

    He wasn't the author of the book, he only edited it.

Doesn't sound like someone with a bunch of money.

    Also be sure to check the land useage. There is a big swath of National Recreation Area there run by the federales. Tons of rules and regulations. And don't forget the Pryor Mountains are under some archaeology study area. They are all rabid against looters.
    His money came from the sale of the land he squatted on. The cave and what he had inside were also found.

    You got your facts wrong.

    Sykes supposedly sold some land and then squatted on another piece of land. When he died i think they found a horsehair rope and sewing machine and I thin it was New York Times newspapers at his house. Later they found a cave with some seeds and other stuff in it. Did they steal the gold or was it ever there? From what the articles said, he didn't live a life of luxury. He was not well-liked and even had some kind of kill list for the people he hated. That area is God-forsaken desert wasteland.

    Maybe he buried the gold with his wife along the fence line, it was then he underwent a major change in his life. I put it in my Northwest Wyoming Treasure Stories book. That's just one of five volumes, something around 1,600 to 1,800 pages of material.

    I know a guy who searched for it with one of Fitzgerald's LRL's. Of course that's private property. You don't need to buy no book to read about it. Besides, almost every one of those treasure legends is a bust. Real treasure you need unpublished, word of mouth info. Most all those stories were peddled B.S. for suckers.

    But demand for old west material is pretty good, and they buy books. There is no need for any search. Folks from the East come out here with expectations. They can drive by Sykes Mountain and think about the cave and $50,000 in gold. An Amazon purchase is a 7 dollar royalty each time. A location ordering 6 volumes is a $35 profit over cost. Signal did you catch me on the channel 8 news? You can read any of my Montana books from the donation I made to the Yellowstone Gold Prospectors Club. They have a complete set with a sign out system. Next they will be getting a set of Wyoming books. I am happy I got to the point I can give the damn things away.
