Book Event: Legends & Treasures of the Santa Catalinas by Robert Zucker and collaborator William Carter
The legends of lost mines, treasure, and even a lost mission in the Santa Catalina Mountains have been passed down by word of mouth for generations. There is a degree of historical truth to some of these legendary tales. The most famous legend of the Santa Catalina Mountains, the Iron Door Mine, helped launch an early American hunt for gold in the 1860s. Adventure seekers combed the mountains looking for lost Spanish treasures and digging for minerals. One obstacle stood in the way of these aspiring prospectors– the Apache Indians who guarded and defended the mountains for hundreds of years. You won’t want to miss the authors’ fascinating talk about the characters and legendary places right in our own back yard. Refreshments will be served. $7.50 fee includes admission to the park.
