The Dutchman and Geronimo: legend of the Superstitions. Rimrock: PWG Publishing, 2009. Large Softcover, x, 107 pages, and 15 pages of maps and photographs in appended Maps and Aerial Photos. Other maps and photographs in the text. Editor Joan Brainard Pinson. Kindle edition. DWG Publishing, 2013. The author states: "In conclusion I do not believe there has ever been any gold mines within the Superstition Mountain range. I do not believe there was or is a mine that Jacob Waltz had in the late 1800's. By everything I have seen and all the evidence I have found I think the Lost Dutchman mine was a fabricatioin by someone or by the Dutchman to make people think he had a gold mine. I think it is more realistic that the Legend of the Lost Dutchman's Mine and his gold being in the Superstition Mountains was to hide the fact that Geronimo and the Dutchman were smelting the Spanish Doubloons down to nugget size so they could cash it it."

The author can be contacted at From the notes with the CD: "Borrego 13. It all started in 1975 when a then young man named Gene Reynolds got involved with a private detective in Oklahoma City. Gene was given an assignment - to find out all he could about a man that was shot and killed in Arizona hunting for what be believed to be the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine. In his travels and endeavors, he found out much more than he had bargained for. Gene went from Washington, D.C. to San Diego and nearly everywhere in-between tracking down information that would eventually lead him to a lost mine in California that he found. He now not only had proof that Adolph Ruth was there, but The Peralta's of old Mexico as well. Not only did he find the California mine, but he also found additional clues that may very well lead him to the Lost Dutchman as well. Now he has to decide what his next move is going to be." The private detective in Oklahoma City is Glen Magill, whose story is chronicled in Gentry's book The Killer Mountains. It is great that Reynolds has made this manuscript available, well worth reading, quite a story.

San Felice, Jack.
Lost El Dorado of Jacob Waltz. Mesa: Millsite Canyon Publishing, 2008. Large spiral bound, 132 pages. Numerous maps and photographs, plus two pages of color photographs. A fascinating new and rather unique appraoch to the Dutchman tale by an author who knows the story and the physical terrain as well as anyone. Author's statement: "Lost Eldorado of Jacob Waltz is based in part upon the newspaper article by Pierpont C. Bicknell. It is also based on my research and recollections of the treasure stories I have read over the last 20 years, and of the many reminiscences of numerous "Dutch Hunters," Peralta Treasure Hunters and Jesuit Treasure Hunters. The Bicknell story is of importance because of the time period. Bicknell published his story in the San Francisco Chronicle in 1895, just four short years after the death of Jacob Waltz, the "Dutchman," when the facts were still fairly fresh in the minds of those who were key players in this story of death, deceit and untold golden riches. Bicknell had access to the first Dutch Hunters, Julia Thomas, Reiney, Herman and Gottfried Petrasch. He also supposedly interviewed Dick Holmes and Gideon Roberts who were at the Dutchman's deathbed and later Jim Bark and many others who also knew the Dutchman's story...During his interviews he probably took literary license with the story, but within his liberties he probably gives us the freshest look at the Dutchman story...However, after reading Bicknell's article many times over the years, and after researching the difference between fact and fiction regarding the Dutchman, I believe that Bicknell was probably closer to the truth than he realized." The truth, the author argues, is that the gold will not be found in the western part of the Superstitions, where it has traditionally been thought to be located, but rather in the eastern part of the Superstitions. This is a handsome publication full of photographs and maps. Very enjoyable, presenting lots of good up-to-date information and speculation. Highly recommended. See new edition, below.

San Felice, Jack.
Lost El Dorado of Jacob Waltz. Mesa: Millsite Canyon Publishing, 2015. Softcover, 454 pages. New edition. "Arizona's Lost Dutchman Mine." "Lost El Dorado of Jacob Waltz is based on over 25 years research and diligently searching Arizona's Superstition Mountains for the world famous Lost Dutchman Mine. This book contradicts the common tale of the mine being in the western Superstitions near Weaver's Needle. Jack San Felice relies on factual and scientific evidence regarding the search for the precious metals and the illusive mine. The author takes a quantum leap of faith and new direction, which leads people closer to the truth, although, many skeptics will always hold the old axiom, when the myth becomes greater that the truth print the myth."

Treasure Trails of the Superstitions. Mesa: Millsite Canyon Publishing, 2006. Large spiral bound, 120 pages. Maps, photographs, and illustrations. First edition. On the copyright page: "Printed for the Superstition Mountain Lost Dutchman Museum." From the Introduction: "This fascinating book covers an overview of the tales, legends and Treasure Trails of the Superstitions, from the early days of Spanish exploration through the 19th, 20th and 21st century searches for gold and silver and buried treasure. It contains many treasure maps, including the Jacob Waltz and Lost Dutchman Mine maps, Peralta Stone maps, Fish Treasure map, Ortiz Map, Peralta-Ruth maps, Weiser-Walker Weeden map, real gold and silver mining maps. It also contains a brief explanation of each map. Many men have searched the Superstitions and nearby mountains for wealth, but few have found it. Many have perished during their searches. Strange and weird things are said to have happened within these mountains. Those who have said they have found the Lost Dutchman's Mine have not lived to spend the wealth. The searches continue.!!!!"

Lore of the Superstitions: with lore, legends, tales, maps and bibliography related to the Superstition Mountains and the Lost Dutchman and Lost Peralta Mines. Jack San Felice, 1999. A limited reprint edition by the Superstition Mountain Historical Society. Large spiral bound notebook, 112 pages. Maps, photographs and illustrations. Author's statement: "The author compiled and updated this booklet during a period of 10 years of conducting research and lecturing on the Superstition Mountains. It was first primarily designed for students to acquaint them with the mountains and give an overview of many of the diverse types of legends and information written about these famous mountains. A formalized book has been written by the author and is in manuscript form. It also contains many personal experiences and photographs of the various famous and not so famous people of the mountains. The author gives first person descriptions of many of the canyons and trails taken during his hikes, horseback and 4-wheeling in the mountains. Jack San Felice 2003." Designed as a notebook for students, this contains a very useful mix of original material and reprints of other author's works. A good introduction as such, and a useful supplement to other works.

Wilson, James L.
Cracking the golden egg: in hot pursuit of the Lost Dutchman Mine. Portland: Inkwater Press, 2005.
Large hardcover, 139 pages, maps and many black and white photographs. Title page: "A contradictory explanation of the Peralta Stone Tablets and the Peralta Master Map; The Jesuit Occupation of the Superstition Mountains of Arizona." From the back cover: "This story is my journey that began years ago, a spiritual journey that continues even until this day. Being interested in lost treasures, I began my search for the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine located in the Superstition Mountains just east of Apache Junction, Arizona. I was a Vietnam helicopter pilot. The experience and knowledge I received from combat enabled me to interpret some of the oldest rock petroglyph images and carvings that are known today: the Peralta Master Map and the Peralta Stone Tablets. These discoveries led me to the opinion that the Peralta Stone Tablets are of Jesuit origin; their secrets, which are public record, were to have been kept secret. The Peralta Stone Tablet images are complex; they are pieces to a larger puzzle that will eventually be complete. History changes now. Photographed Peralta Stone Tablet image locations are shown; they range from a few hundred feet in height to approximately a mile in length being contained in a small area of the vast mountain range. Illustrations of the Fish Treasure Map and the Minas Del Oro Map are shown from different periods of history but each marking the same location. You will discover, as I did, secret places that have been lost in time. A fire will be lit inside you: the excitement of the hunt, whether it is in the mountains or in your easy chair, will burn once again. GodÂ’s speed be with you. James L. Wilson Bandit 27." Although the copyright is 2005, this book came out in 2007.
