  Holder's book Holder, Ralph. Mistic Memories of the Superstition Mountains. 1993. Simply put, this is the work of a treasure seeker, and there are all sorts of treasures to look for - just follow symbols left behind by the Jesuits, by the Peraltas, by who knows whom; and those stone maps and markers... He has some stories to tell, like looking for De Grazia's paintings (allegedly hidden in the Superstitions) based on information he received from his friend Bob Ward, but most of his stories tend to focus on symbols and maps; obsessively so. Poorly written, not a critical work, but his heart is in the right place. Valiant doomed attempt to use photographs to document what he was up to as he read and interpreted both symbols and the landscape. Mentions Bob Ward and family and Ward's pseudonym, Val Paris. With Holder, Garman, Ward, Larson, and Marlowe he is one of the "symbol guys" following in Barry Storm's footsteps looking for physical clues, interpreting a plethora of cryptic signs and symbols as they go.
