X Doesn't Mark the Spot free pdf Anyone who has fantasized about becoming fabulously rich overnight can relate to this collection of treasure hunt stories tales of buried pirate gold, of hidden outlaw loot, of wrecked ships loaded with valuable coins and jewels, and of lost gold mines. Some of the stories are tall tales based on little evidence. Many a dreamer wasted money, energy, and perhaps even a lifetime chasing after a pot of gold that did not exist. But some hidden treasures are real, even if the stories about them are exaggerated. Many of the stories came down to us from an age in which pirates were said to be in league with the devil and supposedly used black magic to protect their hidden plunder. Ed Butts s tales of adventure, of shattered hopes, and, occasionally, of dreams come true expose the greed and the challenges that motivated the searchers. A few of them got lucky. But X didn t mark the spot for most of these adventurers and that means undiscovered treasures still lie ready to ignite the imagination."
