This book has been digitally re-mastered to remove artifacts that occur during aging; faded colors are restored to clarity and vibrancy; pages are straightened and trimmed; blurred text is sharpened and images are enhanced and scaled. Although we do all we can to provide you with the best image quality possible, there are times when age gets the best of us, and we are unable to fix certain things without hurting the integrity of the book. Even with the most sophisticated processing rare books may contain some permanent flaws.

He is the author of more than twenty books, and hundreds of articles in such magazines as The Saturday Evening Post, The Reader's Digest, Coronet, Better Homes & Gardens, etc. An article by him on the Lost Dutchman Mine of Superstition Mountain in The Saturday Evening Post brought him international renown as an authority on this lost-treasure legend, told here in GHOST GOLD in its entirety for the first time. Mr. Arnold was born near Henderson, Texas, and attended The Rice Institute and The University of Texas. Later he worked on newspapers in Texas and Arizona, then in 1930 became a freelance writer.
