Slumach's Gold chronicles what is possibly Canada's greatest lost-mine story.
This Canadian bestseller tracks the intriguing legend that began after Slumach — a Salish man — was hanged for murder in 1891.
The legend turned into a drama of international fascination when Slumach was mysteriously linked to gold nuggets "the size of walnuts."
Stories claimed that Slumach had placed a curse on a hidden motherlode — somewhere deep in the rugged mountains just east of Vancouver, B.C. — to protect it from interlopers and trespassers.
Many seekers have attempted to find Slumach's gold over the past 100 years, yet none have succeeded. Or have they?
The authors have diligently sifted through history and myth, separating fact from fiction, leaving the legend intact — along with the promise of gold yet to be found!
