just wanted to let you folks know i bought a book called the treasure atlas for the united states. it covers north carolina, new york, new mexico , north dakota and ohio. if any of you live in or near these states and would like to know of any local treasure stories that you may want to investigate feel free to pm me and i can scan the pages and send them to you. it has some local legend treasure stories as well as documented treasure stories. a great read for sure and makes me wish i had lots of money to go treasure hunting for about 3 months straight. have a nice day.

Might want to check out the copyright page on the book . . . . .

Not sure Thomas Terry, the author, would appreciate copies being made and distributed when the copyright page clearly says that is not allowed.

As an author myself, not real keen on the concept of one person buying a book and then 1,000 people getting copies of the sections they might be interested in.

Since you can buy individual volumes of the older edition for around $10 which cover multiple states, it seems it would not be a stretch to add the volume(s) of interest to one's collection. There is even a seller on the X-Bay site that has the entire 10 volume set for sale under $60 . . . . . if I did not already have a dog-eared, well-used set I would order another one.

The information on the series is:

SERIES TITLE: United States Treasure Atlas by Thomas P. Terry (1985 - 1986 edition, 10 volumes to the set)

United States Treasure Atlas Vol. 1 Alabama-Alaska-Arizona-Arkansas
United States Treasure Atlas Vol.2 California-Colorado
United States Treasure Atlas, Vol. 3: Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois
United States Treasure Atlas, Vol.4 Indiana-Iowa-Kansas-Kentucky-Louisiana
United States Treasure Atlas, Vol. 5: Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi
United States Treasure Atlas, Vol. 6 Missouri-Montana-Nebraska-Nevada-New Hampshire-New Jersey
United States Treasure Atlas, Vol. 7 New Mexico-New York-North Carolina-North Dakota-Ohio
United States Treasure Atlas Vol. 8, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota
United States Treasure Atlas Vol.9 Tennessee-Texas-Utah
United States Treasure Atlas Volume 10 Vermont-Virginia-Washington-West Virginia-Wisconsin-Wyoming

Thomas is coming out with a new revised series with fewer volumes yet more information . . . . last I heard from him was that the series is slated to start release this year and be complete over a 2 year period.

He did an amazing job collecting what he did on the early edition and has expanded the work on the newest edition.

Everyone needs to do what they feel is right . . . . but advertising to send copies of a portions of a copyrighted book just does not pass the taste test with me . . . but that is one person's opinion.

wasnt intending to send out hundreds of pages at all. and didnt mean to offend anyone. just thought if anyone lived in these areas and would like a new place to hunt i would help out. didnt think there would be a problem since the book was almost 25 years old. if the moderators do not want this post then they can delete it if it causes anyone a problem. thanks all and happy hunting.

just thought i would let everyone know that i contacted mr terry by phone and apologized for not thinking and sending info from his book. he said he didnt mind a few pages here and there but not a whole book or hundreds of pages. so if anyone is interested in one of these books as andy said you can look on fee bay and they are relatively cheap. sorry for any problems. thanks
