Customer Review of Shadow of the Sentinel: One Man's Quest to Find the Hidden Treasure of the Confederacy
Exciting new history proven by current day facts
First you should know that this is the paperback version of "Shadow of the Sentinel" but you will want both-that for your permanent library and this one for your backpack. I can personally attenst to the signs and symbols referenced as I lived in NW Arkansas in the 1950's and was surrounded by searchers for 'lost Spanish gold'. A true book you will not be able to put down and a search that is far from finished. Well written and extensively researched.


Skip it
Well, well... hard core treasure buffs are the hardest lot to dissuade. These 4 and 5 star reviews are something else. I have never been a big believer in `lost mines/hoards' - gold of this magnitude won't stay hidden for long. And when it is recovered, the person or persons recovering the hoard won't advertise it. <
> <
>(...) <
> <
>While obvious that Brewer has a talent for deciphering obscure and confusing map codes, it is apparent that he has preconceived notions that lead him in the direction he wants to go. He is like a chemist or scientist that already 'knows' the results he wants to achieve, so he manipulates the experiment to get his desired result. <
> <
>The Lost Dutchman mine legend is built upon historical fact. It is strains credibility for Brewer to come to Arizona and in a few days re-write the Spanish mining history of the southwest; suddenly it all becomes `Rebel Gold'. <
> <
>Some of the mines attributed to the `Dutchman' have actually been located and documented - not the cache that Jocob Walzer hid and occasionally visited - but the actual mine workings of the area around Weaver's Needle. There is nothing particularly unusual about Spanish mine workings in the southwest, and how they were occasionally `high graded' by miners - that sustained them in style for a number of years, while the legend grew and grew. The Lost Dutchman mine has been romanticized to the point, that it has entered the public domain of movies, books and legend. What is galling is that Brewer and his partners never even entered the actual Superstition Mountains. Never more than a few minutes from the highway and the air conditioned SUV, they spend their time trespassing and digging on private land, drawing horse heads on topographic maps (get a fresh copy of the Wickenburg area topo maps - you won't find a horse head, a soldier monk anywhere, unless you WANT to see it - then get a black pen and draw it in - you can probably draw in a happy face if you want). Bob sees `heart shaped' images everywhere - he can hardly walk outside with spotting heart shaped boulders, mountains, rocks - he sees them on the landscape, he sees him in Ashcroft's gag photo, he inks them onto his topo maps. KGC sign all around - even on US topographic maps - which is so silly it needs no further comment. <
> <
>They find shotgun shells arranged in a five pointed star and conclude that is KGC sign - are we to conclude that these shells have lain on this spot for decades or that the KGC is just hours ahead? He finds something that he decides is significant, announces it as a `clue'. Later he finds another random item he decides is a clue and points out that `it lines up precisely with the previous clue'. Well sure, Bob - two points make a straight line. Thanks for the basic geometry lesson. <
> <
>What begins to push this entire book into the `conspiracy' section of the local library is the helicopter scenario right out of the X-Files. What is probably a realtor showing property (first helicopter flyby) or a federal officer (second one) is spun into such contrived weirdness that it demonstrates that Brewer and the boys are way out of their league in the Southwest. Southern Arizona isn't the wooded hills of Arkansas and Oklahoma - this is the hard Sonoran Desert - drugs, bounty hunters, smugglers, illegal aliens, etc. It is gradually becoming militarized and being confronted by feds exhibiting odd behavior is not unusual. These well fed treasure tourists with the metal detectors (mountain men as Getler continually reminds us) must have been quite a sight shaking at the site of the mysterious helicopter flying `sentinel'. Later they are unnerved by the sight of a `dead' rabbit, they conclude that it had been left as a `warning' and that they didn't want to wind up like `Adolf Ruth'. (Adolf Ruth was murdered, shot in the head by one of the itinerant cowboys that guided him into the Superstitions; animals most likely separated the head from the body during the months it was exposed.) <
> <
>The idea that the KGC would have helicopter flying 'sentinels' that would go to the trouble to confront a couple of fat guys wandering around looking at rocks is ludicrous. But since they have this image of this vast treasure hoard buried somewhere round here, they have created aura of paranoia around them - everything has import. They ask us to believe that the Knights of the Golden Circle (disbanded 90 years ago) have a helicopter STANDING BY, to frighten off people with metal detectors. <
> <
>Beech tree graffiti, helicopters (at least they weren't black), `eyes rolled back' gag photo, grandpa riding a horse ("on patrol" guarding the treasure - well, sure... of course - that's obvious), photo of Albert Pike (total nutcase), `coded' photograph of some winking dandy so full of self importance he loads up the photo with the most obvious of `codes' - his mysterious `all seeing eye' on the instep of his shoe. One thing that Brewer and Getler seem to not understand is that Freemasonry is NOT a secret society; it is - if anything - a society of secrets - and most of those are public knowledge. <
> <
>In Arizona, using a backhoe and without the owner's permission, they dig up a trash midden. Each bit of random trash has deep significance, more `code' - you wonder if, for Brewer, a cigar is EVER just a cigar. Every single item has some hidden meaning - and when the bottom of the debris fails to deliver the expectant treasure - rather than admitting they were digging for nothing, the mystery deepens. This trash heap is suddenly placed there to `throw them off the trail'. Brewer states that it all confirms his research. The author actually includes a photo of these guys with all the junk they recovered laid out. Junk - all of it - a book on what they claim is the largest treasure hoard in North America and these guys are digging up pig iron and broken kitchenware. Two pieces of rusted steam pipe are the `cross' of the skull and crossbones, some scrap metal is shaped like a heart, a horse skull is an `ancient French Breed used by Crusader Knights', broken pottery has a circle design underneath. To them, all of this has coded significance. This reminds me of that 'Calvin and Hobbs' comic skit - where Calvin is 'excavating for dinosoars' and digs up all this junk - soda cans, bottles, pipes - what does this all mean? Calvin assembles his 'artifacts' into a dinosoar and announces his 'discovery'. <
> <
>With a bit of training these `mountain men' could be shown how to tell the difference between `artificially disturbed soils' (deliberately buried) and random deposition by wind or water. These are standard archeological recognition skills and knowledge of geological deposition. Brewer shows no real knowledge of what is known as `site formation processes'. If `hunting for buried treasure' in the ground has been as important part of his life as this book claim it has, then he would understand these things. It confirms my idea that Brewer is the armchair sort - and comfortable with his ciphers and codes - most of which he made up. <
> <
>The entire Arizona portion was just hilarious - like tourists on a Caribbean Island Club Med vacation walking around looking for signs of pirate treasure. Suddenly they are comfronted by a landowner who runs them off, and they decide that the man is a descendant of Captain Kidd guarding the buried treasure chest. <
> <
>And then the final cop-out in the book - Brewer has this `immense calm' come over him and decided - or one isn't quite sure - to leave the treasure where it is - conveniently located on federal lands (Brewer and Getler - in true paranoid fashion decide that is part of the `conspiracy' as well). Ah! I can't recover the treasure, but could if I wanted to, but I don't' want to, since it was guarded by my family members and I have conflicting emotions, and it IS on government land so we can't dig it up. This of course, provides an excuse for the fact that Brewer never found much more than a jar full of coins after 40 years of searching. I am sure, however, that he will continue to be a big hit at the Treasure show circuits. <

Confederate Gold
This is an excellent book for all treasure hunters and people who like to read some good history. It tells of how a man from Arkansas cracks the secret treasure code of a secret Southern society. The Knight of the Gold Circle. At the end of the Civil War certain powerful men in the South were going to save up big for a second war. Their saving were in Gold and buried in depositorys across the South. This books in an interesting read. <
