"In 2013, Jack Dublin and family traveled to the Grand Canyon for a week of whitewater rafting on the Colorado River. When a monsoon rolled in, forcing them to higher ground, they sheltered in a cave unseen for nearly 150 years. Inside, they found several journals from the time of the Gold Rush that upended mainstream views of North American history, leading one authority to call the journals "the greatest manuscript discovery since the Dead Sea Scrolls.""
In The Lost and Found Journal of a Miner 49er, Vol. 1, Jack Dublin charms us into a world of Christian-themed folklore stretching from the outback of Australia to the Island of California. Along the way, we encounter mythical creatures, from wish-granting mermaids and red-haired giants, to talking coyotes and a dreadful Canyon Sphinx. We relive exploits of powerful rulers and infamous outlaws who, though their names be lost to history, entangle themselves in our imaginations with the likes of Abe Lincoln and Billy the Kid. Join the rush!
