Editor reviews

Author and narrator of Buried Treasures of the Civil War W. C. Jameson has the best old-timey job in the world: He is a prospector. Jameson is a seasoned hunter of lost treasures; he is also a skilled folklorist. Combining his interests, Jameson tells these purely American tales concerning the mislaid (Yankee and Confederate) treasures of the Civil War. Jameson has a deep and warm voice. His tone is authoritative as befits his expertise on the subject. Listeners will become engrossed in the concise but definitive descriptions of locales, persons, and the circumstances by which loot becomes buried. Jameson’s self-assured performance will enable arm chair prospectors to discover these treasures through the act of hearing.

Thumbs down

A collection of stories that simply were not believable, not helped when the narrator jingled coins at the end of one story.
The sort of thing you might want to listen to on a hot Mississippi night on a rocking chair on the front porch drinking a beer when you get tired of listening to the bug zapper.
