"Jameson, a professional treasure hunter, teacher, and editor, continues his "Buried Treasure" series, which now numbers over a dozen titles. Jameson is a good storyteller and has done extensive research in tracking down all these tales.... These could be popular with younger readers and may even be highly requested in areas specific to the various titles."
School Library Journal
"The stories appear to be thoroughly researched and are written in a lively, narrative style. Jameson features the typical pirate legends, such as Blackbeard, but also makes readers aware of the lesser-know reasons for lost treasure, such as weather-related shipwrecks and inland burial sites that are difficult to find. State maps indicate the probable locations of the lost booty discussed. An interesting piece of history for nonfiction and adventure buffs."
