Treasure hunters from far and wide have been descending on San Francisco’s Golden Gate park. It’s because of a book called “The Secret” published in 1982.
The late author Byron Preiss laid out clues for 12 buried treasures hidden in 12 North American cities. Each one was buried in a cask containing a key that opens a safe deposit box containing one of 12 jewels. The clues are spelled out in 12 verses with each verse has a corresponding image that functions like a coded map. Just last week a treasure hunter pulled something out of the ground in golden gate park.
