This book is the remarkable true story of Forrest Fenn's life and of a hidden treasure, secreted somewhere in the mountains north of Santa Fe. The book contains clues to the treasure's location as Forrest Fenn invites readers to join in The Thrill of the Chase.
After retiring from the Air Force in 1970, the author built an art gallery in Santa Fe that he and his wife ran for seventeen years. Since retiring again in 1988, his energies have been directed toward excavation of a large Indian pueblo and writing books about art and exploration. This is his eighth book and now he has promised to rest, but he has broken that promise several times before.
