THE LOST DUTCHMAN MINE
OF JACOB WALTZ
THE HOLMES MANUSCRIPT
COMPILED AND ANNOTATED BY
The Holmes Manuscripts is the only surviving account of any of the pioneer families originally involved with Jacob Waltz (the "Lost Dutchman") and his gold. Here unfolds for the first time the original story of Jacob Waltz and the Lost Dutchman Mine, accompanied by original
Holmes' family photographs.
The Manuscript was discovered uncataloged in the vaults of the Arizona State Library in the early 1970's among the private papers of an early newspaperman. The question became: Is this the genuine lost manuscript of the Holmes family? After all, George "Brownie" Holmes - the apparent author - disclaimed any and all association with it.
Was Brownie telling the truth? Or, was he trying to confuse others who searched for the mine? Through a decade of research in archives and private libraries, supported by interviews with
Brownie's surviving family, the author has authenticated the manuscript.
It has been annotated and indexed.
This is a second of a two book series on the mine: The Lost Dutchman Mine of Jacob Waltz.
