Treasure Hunting Books for Free!

Below are Treasure Hunting books that are interesting. Both FICTION and NON-FICTION. Don’t get the two confused, please. There are plenty of crappy THing books claiming to be non-fiction that are fiction. Like Sentinel / Confederate Gold.

The books below are now public domain, meaning their copyright has expired. Because of this, there is no longer any marketing budget being spent to promote these books. Therefore, you may never have heard about them.   Being how some of them where written in the 1800s and early 1900s, their use of grammar is a bit different. Fear not, they are all good books.

Note of warning – many of these books were converted into epubs via the Microsoft or Google scanning effort. Because of this the OCR scanned words into gibberish quite often, ie. Texas might be T3xas.  So low quality isn’t my fault, blame Google.
