My Buried Treasure

Richard Harding Davis

Book Overview: 

This is a true story of a search for buried treasure. The only part that is not true is the name of the man with whom I searched for the treasure.

"I see," I said, "I am to act as the historian of the expedition."

"That will be arranged later," said Edgar. "What I chiefly want you for is to dig. Can you dig?" he asked eagerly. I told him I could; but that I would rather do almost anything else.

"I MUST have one other man," repeated Edgar, "a man who is strong enough to dig, and strong enough to resist the temptation to murder me." The retort was so easy that I let it pass. Besides, on Edgar, it would have been wasted.

"I THINK you will do," he said with reluctance. "And now the conditions!"

I smiled agreeably.
