The Hidden Treasure of Forrest Fenn is an African American history book based off a national treasure hunt that lured thousands of people into the mountains with the hopes of finding a treasure chest filled with gold coins and precious jewels.

 

For nearly a decade, treasure hunters and journalist around the world believed Forrest Fenn hid a treasure chest with rubies, emeralds, diamonds, sapphires, turquoise, silver and gold, for anyone to find. This is why he titled his memoir, The Thrill of the Chase, because everyone believed the treasures were precious gems and overlooked the many jewels hidden throughout his stories, like Ruby Bridges, Ramona "Sapphire" Lofton, Mary "Diamond Teeth" McClain, and Whoopi Goldberg. 

 

The 20-pound treasure chest, filled with 22 pounds of precious jewels was a riddle that could only be solved after finding the precise location in the Rocky Mountains. The 20-pound treasure chest represented no. 20 Frank Robinson, the first African American to manage a major league team, the 22 pounds represented no. 22 John Jordan "Buck" O'Neil Jr., the first African American to coach a major league team, and no. 42 Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play major league baseball. 

 

This book contains over 500 past and present trailblazers, whose names or stories were mentioned in the author's memoir, along with the solution to his poem that has baffled treasure hunters for nearly a decade, and the nine clues that led me directly to the author's imagination.
