Dr. Glover’s new book, “The Lost Dutchman Mine of Jacob Waltz, Unraveling a Mystery”, is available on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Lost-Dutchma...gateway&sprefix=lost+dutchman,aps,306&sr=8-13

Quantities are limited in this first printing.

The cover artwork is very similar to his first book, “The Lost Dutchman Mine: Part 1, The Golden Dream”, so make sure if you’re ordering that it’s “Unraveling a Mystery” and not “Part 1, the Golden Dream”.

Content Review:

30-plus years of research and field work are apparent in Dr. Glover’s fourth and final book on the Dutchman. He tracked down and discusses Waltz’s mining partner Jacob Weiss(er), his sudden (documented) death in 1867, Weiss’s brother Nicholas, and their farm in Arizona. There’s detail about Waltz’s life and activities in CA, and more on the Peralta family and their involvement. Dr. Glover also revisits the Dutchman ore analysis he took part in years ago; revealing new details about the ore composition that at the time, were not released to the public.

Dr. Oertel, continuing his research into Waltz’s life and family in Germany, makes an updated appearance which will leave no doubt as to who Jacob Waltz really was, his educational background, and how he got from Germany to America. Dr. Glover visits Waltz’s family farm in Germany, and makes some interesting discoveries along the way.

Dr. Glover then makes a detailed study of Waltz’s time in the Bradshaws, his mining activity and the people involved, and finally the people and events that led up to Waltz departing the area to live in what would become Phoenix. In this portion, Dr. Glover reveals connections that could answer the question of why Waltz moved to the Salt River Valley and why he located on a portion of school land instead of claiming 160 acres under the Homestead Act. Spoiler alert: The Starar’s and another early German settler are involved.

In the latter part of the book, Dr. Glover studies Waltz’s later life in detail, including a very good investigation into the shooting of Pedro Ortega at Waltz’s house. He also takes a detailed look at what Waltz was doing on his property, and how others may have taken advantage of Waltz’s situation, in the years and months leading up to the devastating flood of 1891 that ruined Waltz’s life on his small piece of remaining land.

Like his other works on the subject, Dr. Glover provides detailed and accurate footnotes and endnotes for all his sources, something perhaps we’ve all gotten used to, but was relatively rare in the field when he came along with his first book 21 years ago.

I received my copy of his latest book which was personally signed. Many thanks for the wealth of information and professional preparation. I have spent this past winter geologically mapping the Big Rebel and surrounding area. I've located a large east to west vein that is probably the General Grant.

Discussion about LDM ore possibly containing tellurium are interesting. Does anyone have a copy of the chemical analysis that was performed on the Matchbox and other LDM items?

PB Jim,
You do nice posts! I have enjoyed reading many, many of your posts. Your content review looks like this is a good read. I didn't see this thread when I first came here a few months ago. Checked your link and there was one available . . . . I pulled the trigger and got it. It will be my first book purchase concerning the LDM. I guess I can officially be called a dutch hunter now ???:BangHead::thumbsup:

Thanks again for posting this (I know it was last June, but thanks)

The book came today! I did not realize that it was going to be a signed copy. Started to read it, and I think it is going to be worth the read.
Back to work, and then I can read some more tonight.

Congrats, Idaho! I spoke to Dr. Glover today and there is only one book left. He's thinking about getting another batch printed up, but no guarantees. If he does get another batch printed I'll post here once they're available.

Hello everyone

Can anyone help me locate a copy of this new book by Dr. Glover? I can't find any online nor at the Superstition museum and I'd like to buy one for my father's 70th birthday

Many thanks,

Jeep,

Care to take me along next time? I'm near Peoria and would love to check out JW activity up north! I can pay gas money...haha. Well I hope I can at least track down a couple copies of Dr. Glover's new book, one for me one for dear old dad!

Greg, the first printing of this book has been completely sold out since early 2020. Thomas no longer has any copies available. At this time, there's no plans to do a second printing. If that ever changes, I'll make sure and update this thread to let folks know. Take care, Jim

EDIT: Greg, for some reason your update after your signature above didn't register with me while I was replying :tongue3:
Now I see you had already let people know it was sold out...ay caramba! Past my bedtime:D
