This book is the remarkable true story of Forrest Fenn's life and of a hidden treasure, secreted somewhere in the mountains north of Santa Fe. The book contains clues to the treasure's location as Forrest Fenn invites readers to join in The Thrill of the Chase.
Forrest Fenn hid a treasure chest several years ago - filling it with gold and jewels, and placed it somewhere in the Rocky Mountains North of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Estimates on the value of the chest range from one to three million dollars.James Porowski is a psychologist with specialties in personality development, creativity, and intelligence. So when a friend introduced him to The Thrill of the Chase, he was hooked. He carefully read and reread Forrest Fenn's book, and found it to be a work of art: creative, profoundly sincere, and funny. In his studies, which included six cross country trips to Montana, he found that the pictures throughout Fenn's book and their intricate arrangement were not random. They pointed to specific places on the map, and led to the general location where Fenn's treasure should be found. Porowski's book, Picture Clues of Forrest Fenn in The Thrill of the Chase, carefully takes the reader through all nine clues of Forrest Fenn's poem. He then uses the pictures and stories in Fenn's book to detail each of the nine clues, and place the treasure in an area where the Madison river flows through Bear Trap Canyon in Montana.Forrest Fenn is an artist: highly intelligent and detail oriented. The pictures in Fenn's book keep to that style.

Sarah's a whiz at tuning engines and winning races. Winning Craig, the local drag race hero, proves more difficult. He only has eyes for gorgeous women who are hot in the sack, not grubby tomboys. Sarah’s world gets an overhaul when her father hires Gordon. Soon she’s torn not only between two men she wants, but between the drag race winner she is and the woman she feels pressured to become. Reviews Sarah Matell isn't a run-of-the-mill romance heroine. She works as a technician in her father's California automotive speed shop, dresses and acts like a guy, and lives for drag racing. Anything female, from makeup to chick flicks, is an anathema to her. Sarah's one concession is her years-long crush on a fellow race-car driver, Craig Keller. Although they are only good friends, she fantasizes that one day she'll outrace him and he'll magically look at her as the love of his life. Meanwhile, Sarah is the apple of her father's eye, but things change when he hires Gordon Devine. Gordon has big plans, and he and Sarah do not get along. Despite the friction, Gordon asks Sarah to drive a prototype he's developed. She'll do anything to win, and soon everything begins to spiral out of control. Impulsive and spoiled, Sarah is both enjoyable and annoying, and readers will sympathize with Gordon in this atypical, up-to-the-minute contemporary romance. -- Maria Hatton -- Booklist Review, October 1, 2007 "When I got to the end of Thrill of the Chase, I wanted more.

Thomas, The Long and the Short Of It Reviews "Let me tell you now that the fun is in the Thrill of the Chase." - Lil, Love Romances and More

Samuel J. Wagstaff Jr. (1921–1987) amassed an extraordinary collection of 26,000 photographs between 1973 and 1984, recognizing that photography was an undervalued art form on which he might have a profound impact as a collector. He was mainly attracted to photographs that stimulated his imagination, and his taste ran toward the idiosyncratic—images that surprised him chiefly because he had never seen them before. In choosing the 147 works reproduced in this volume, Paul Martineau selected masterpieces as well as images from obscure sources: daguerreotypes, cartes-de-visite, and stereographs, plus mug shots, medical photographs, and works by unknown makers. The latter category contains some of the most outstanding objects in the collection, demonstrating Wagstaff’s willingness to position unfamiliar images alongside works by established masters as well as underrepresented contemporary artists of the time, including Jo Ann Callis, William Garnett, and Edmund Teske. This book is published to accompany an eponymous exhibition on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from March 15 to July 31, 2016; at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT, from September 10 to December 11, 2016; and at the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, ME, from February 1 to April 30, 2017.
