“Gold, the glowing sacred metal of the ancient Incas, the elusive prize so many men have dreamed of and for which so many have died.
For decades the great fleets of galleons sailed the Spanish Main, loaded with gold and precious gems plundered from a hundred lost cities of the Inca Empire. But for every pound of gold carried off by the Spanish, tons remained behind, hidden in remote mountains and sacred lakes, or buried in forgotten pirate treasure caches. And there it remains, waiting for men bold enough and tough enough to find it.
Howard Jennings is such a man, a fabulous real-life treasure hunter who seems almost to have stepped out of the pages of romantic adventure fiction.
An, plainly, best-selling author Robin Moore, Jennings’ long time friend and sometime companion in adventure, was the ideal man to help Jennings tell his story.”
