This reminded me of my older brother's quest to find a lost Indian silver mine in the Greene County, Ohio region. He spent years out walking around the county looking for it, mostly along/around riverbanks.

The existence of the mine has long been part of local folk lore, but it became better well known after author Allen Eckert wrote about it in his book, "The Frontiersman." This book, or at least parts of it, was used in the teaching of Ohio history, a class required for all 7th graders in the state.
