THE CAVE WHERE THE WATER ALWAYS DRIPS
by
Robert Louis DeMayo
The Cave Where the Water Always Drips
 
This story is a work of fiction.  All characters and events are creations of the author.
(from Amazon)
In 1605 two Spaniards searched the secluded canyons of Arizona for a lost treasure; their only lead, an Apache witch. In the days that followed they learned that things aren't always as they appeared, and not every treasure can be stolen.
(from the author)
There are many tales of lost treasure from the Sedona area, and although Montezuma's treasure may not be on the top of the list, the Lost Coconino Gold Mine was around here somewhere (it still hasn't been found); and it was supposedly located in a box canyon with a hidden entrance.  There have been quite a few pieces of Spanish armor found in nearby Sycamore Canyon - so we know they were here.

The Yavapai/Apache do have a creation myth for this area, and it its told here through the voice of a character named Sean, but any explanation of the myth in this publication is the work of the author.
Sincerely yours

 MY VIEW
As you start to turn the pages, you are immediately attracted to the story.  You become part of the setting ad  plot.  It is a wonderful adventure of the  Searching of the secluded canyons especially the Lost  Coconino Gold Mine in Sedona, Arizona by two Spaniards in 1605.  Their only lead to the lost treasure is an Apache witch.   They soon discover that what you think is not necessarily the way it is.  The book is well written and engages the reader right away.  It is a short story that is self published.  I'm quite amazed at the story I'm told.  A very good book that you can't put down. I would recommend everyone to read this book.  It is quite the travel through the canyons in search of lost treasure.  If it existed or exists?  Travel along and enjoy.  I thought the cover was extraordinary and set the interest for turning the pages.

I was given a complimentary copy of the book, THE CAVE WHERE THE WATER ALWAYS DRIPS by Robert Louis DeMayo for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
