This 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.
