Half a century ago, four friends from Arizona State University set out following clues in search of the legendary Lost Dutchman Mine believed by many to be somewhere in Arizona's Superstition Mountains. Most stories and legends surrounding the lost mine are already familiar to those who have followed the mystery over the years. This book provides details about a previously unpublished true-life adventure that, until now, has never been published. It's a new look at the history and legends surrounding the Superstitions. First time readers as well as those who have followed the century-old Lost Dutchman Mine legend will be intrigued by this uniquely personal account of the events that took place in the deep canyons and recesses of those foreboding mountains more than half a century ago—just a few short miles from Phoenix. Follow along with Carl as he describes their trip into the Superstitions.

This video is a composite of film footage shot by Robert E. Lee in four separate segments using a 16mm movie camera. The first part was filmed in 1960, the second in 1962 and the remaining two in 1974. It has been around for over 50 years. The footage on this DVD will be interesting to those wanting to learn more about the Lost Dutchman's Mine. Because Lee shot the original on 16mm film over 50 years ago, it lacks today's standards for fine image definition. What Lee's film does present is footage of actual locations and people that have become a part of the legend surrounding the lost treasure in Arizona's Superstition Mountains.

The film segment shot in 1962 was taken about a month before Carl and his friends made their trek into the Superstitions following clues seeking the whereabouts of the Dutchman's lost treasure. The little knowledge they had had been gained through extensive library research since this was a time before the internet.
