In “Treasures of the Santa Catalina Mountains,” Robert has compiled an extensive history and legends of the Santa Catalina Mountains. He collaborated with Flint to reveal many forgotten legends of lost mines, a lost city and a lost mission north of Tucson, Arizona in the Catalinas. There are hundreds of stories of prospectors who have scoured the mountain range in search of naturally embedded gold, copper and silver, and in the search for the lost Iron Door Mine (also called the Escalante Mine).

Flint Carter has been prospecting the Catalina Mountains for more than four decades and has several large mining claims still active in the mountains. He has followed the legend of the Iron Door Mine in the footsteps of many other treasure hunters, including Buffalo Bill Cody who owned a mining venture near Oracle. Robert Zucker has explored the Santa Catalinas all of his life and has extensively researched the legends and history of the mountains
