About James

As a semi-retired senior, I researched the story of the lost gold bars of Camp McKinney. My years in agriculture allowed me to comfortably search the rugged BC forest uncovering valuable clues over the years. Although I have paid a high cost for my unwavering search, I have once again seen the magick and power in nature.

    I received this book for Christmas and once I started reading it I could barely put it down. It felt like I was immersed in the adventure and chasing stolen gold right along side of Camp Jimmy. His passion and hard work is clearly evident in his eloquent writings and portrayal of all the various characters, who he brings to life in his writings. Through his exhaustive and tireless historical research he paints a very vivid picture of the people, places, things and the time period involved in his quest to solve the mystery of the stolen gold bars. A thoroughly enjoyable and exciting read and I really appreciated all the photo’s and historical references and descriptions of the various time periods. An awesome book well worth the price.
