The Cordero Saga ~ RLB Hartmann ~ Book 1 #Historical #Fiction
One family...one story...one continuing adventure
Northwest Mexico in the 1880's
......a land of vast, largely uninhabited plains broken by rugged mountains,
canyons and caves wherein -- it was said -- wild animals, Apaches,
and evil spirits lurked.
Nineteen leather sacks filled with gold coins
and over 500 pounds of bullion
remained hidden at La Nariz, a remote landmark somewhere
near Ciudad Chihuahua, until the early 1960's.
What happened on that stormy afternoon
when three cowboys sought shelter in a cave
has been told by the late Joe K. Parrish in his article
"The Disappearing Gold of La Nariz"
How the treasure came to be there is another story.
