manuscript recounts the wild adventures my brother Chuck and I had
during our odyssey across the deserts and barren mountains of Southern
Arizona near Tubac, Tumacacori and Arivaca.
We camped out for two years while treasure
hunting, exploring and living a life few would undertake today. We met
some of the most colorful characters imaginable fighting the harsh
environment and gaining two lifelong friends, Roy Purdie and Walt
Fisher. We heard tales from old Indians and Mexican vaqueros— some
bordering on the “Twilight Zone.”
Some of my articles have appeared in various publications including Arizona Highways, Southern Arizona Trails, Fate magazine and a number of newspapers. The Tucson Citizen, a local newspaper, ran several stories about our adventures.
Ron passed away on August 30, 2016 in Tucson, Arizona. He was 83. Read more about Ron Quinn's life.
"Dedicated to my brother Charles Quinn,
Walter Fisher and Roy Purdie."

Treasure hunting in Southern Arizona with
Ron Quinn, brother Chuck, and good friends and partners, Roy Purdie and
Walt Fisher is a fun read and a great book for novice or seasoned
Searching for hidden treasures few have ever heard of, we had
discovered places that have never been visited by others to this day.
Each day was a new, exciting adventure finding strange Indian caves,
ancient stone walls and lost Spanish settlements. These two wonderful
years would become the most adventurous times of our lives.
The four of us finally unearthed a medium-size treasure south
of Tucson, Arizona, which consisted of 82 pounds of Spanish gold
bullion. Other trips were made throughout the years, but none as lengthy
as our first two year odyssey.
