„Apache Gold, A Story of the Strange Southwest” is a rip-roaring tale of adventure set on the Arizona frontiers of the American Old West written by Joseph Alexander Altsheler (April 29, 1862 – June 5, 1919). He was an American newspaper reporter, editor and author of popular juvenile historical fiction. An abiding classic of western literature, our hero in this tale is Charles Wayne, a young but strong and sharp lad who seeks adventure in the southwesterly desert frontier of Arizona. Charles has terrifying encounters with wild beasts and Indians when he searches for the lost treasure of the Spaniards. Joseph A. Altsheler describes the vast open frontier evocatively, placing the reader in a time when equal measures of freedom and danger were abundant. Throughout Mr. Wayne’s traversals, we’re reminded of how difficult it was to survive – let alone thrive – in the Old West. The beauty of the unforgiving land forms a vibrant backdrop to the scrapes and challenges our heroes must face.
