When Forrest Fenn hid a chest full of gold, sapphires, and rubies somewhere in the Rocky Mountains in 2010, he tapped into something deep. It was like the American Dream reduced to its essence—an equal-opportunity quest for a small fortune. What seemed at first like a harmless poem containing nine treasure clues sent thousands on a journey of obsession and desperation. One searcher—Darrell Seyler—gave everything.

Beautiful and Moving

I could not stop listening. There were moments when I thought: this material is stretched far too thin to sustain now. And every time I thought this, I was proved wrong. Somehow, all the threads weave together to make a shimmering cloth of enveloping warmth.

Didn’t want to stop listening

This would have to be in my top 5 podcast series that I’ve listened to. The storytelling was outstanding. Even when I walked away from it, I couldn’t stop thinking about masterful the storytelling was. So good!

Kept me listening

Loved the story, the author/ podcasted did a great job of telling the story and presenting all the chapters in such an interesting way. I ended up really liking Darryl and being happy for his ending. Worth every minute of my listening
