1 Dobie, J. Frank Coronado's Children (Lost Mines And Buried Treasures of the Southwest)
New York Garden City Hardcover Mead, Ben Carlton 
(1930) Near Fine in a Good dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. Both the spine and the decorative front panel are stamped in yellow. Yellow topstain, slightly spotted. Map-endpapers. 367pps. There is mild bumping to the spine-ends. The boards are lightly rubbed. Otherwise an excellent copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. No reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a large chip at the heel of the spine; there are other smaller chips and tears. The top 1/4" of the jacket has been trimmed, inexplicably. Overall, a very nice copy of the book in only somewhat flawed dustjacket. Includes several black and white plates and numerous line drawings.

"...A thrilling panorama of four centuries of prospectors who, beginning with Coronado and extending to the present time, have searched the tortuous Southwest country for lost mines of fabulous wealth. What the golden fleece was to the Greeks and El Dorado to South America, these lost mines have been to that section of the United States once owned by Spain. The story of these mines is a cycle made up of a thousand thrilling tales.tales involving roaming cowboys, rangers, pirates, miners and outlaws, as well as preachers and doctors, earth-treading farmers and gold-thirsty women."
