    Default The Secret-high res scans!

    One of my all time favorites, The Secret was published in 1982 by Byron Priess. 12 casques containing keys redeemable for jewels were hidden, 11 in the US and 1 in Canada. In 1983, 2 guys dug up the first treasure in Grant Park Chicago. The hunt went dead for 21 years until 2004 when Egbert from the Quest4Treasure forums dug up a discolored 22 year old casque out of the cleveland Cultural Gardens. Needless to say this was a huge deal for the few working this puzzle over there. Egbert met with Byron and recieved his prize. Tragically, Byron died in a car accident a few months ago. As Im sure he would have liked, the hunt goes on. Progress has slowed with this one and as I believe puzzles are created to be solved, I hope this will help expose the hunt to someone who might help solve a location! If you want, you may start discussion here but I recommend you check out:

    Quest4Treasure is listed in our links here:

    http://www.tweleve.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1639

    I am an moderator on this forum and it is a very complete recollection of everything that has gone down in this hunt for the past few years. I would like to offer to help with the bandwidth burden (as the book is out of print) by hosting the high res scans here. I recommend STRONGLY that you get the book used on amazon, its a full 221 pages!

    high res scans and verses.

    They are over 60 megs so it will take a bit to download.

    I would love to get this book, but I can't find any information on Amazon

    Originally, I had trouble finding it on Amazon too. I found it listed on Alibris, and learned the "main" author is Sean Kelly. I was able to find the book on Amazon when I searched with his name. You can also search the ISBN number (ISBN: 0553014080).

    There were about 20 copies available yesterday, ranging from $10 to about $90. I ordered a copy from a nearby used bookstore.

    You should also keep an eye on eBay. I picked up a copy for a total of about $5 a month or two ago.

    It's pretty sweet.
