About the Book

The thirteen stories in this volume revisit some of the most famous unsolved cases of missing treasure from British Columbia, Alberta, and the Northwest Territories. These popular legends tell harrowing tales—of missing loot from a Cariboo stagecoach robbery, gold bullion lost in a blizzard at the summit of Chilkoot Pass, and a terrifying murder at the Lost Lemon Mine, where a mysterious curse guards the secret of Alberta’s greatest lost treasure.

But did the events in these legends really take place? Here is where historian Garnet Basque brings new information to light, weighing the evidence in each case to sort out fact from fiction. The results are sure to surprise and inspire new generations of treasure seekers in their search for “lost bonanzas.”

Also available, The Lost Bonanzas of Western Canada, Volume 2.
