So you've decided to give up the rat race for the life of an international treasure hunter, but you're not quite sure where to start. Well then, this book is for you! Fortune and Glory tells you all you need to know in order to set off on an epic quest for the great lost treasures of history. Starting with a quick exploration of the history of treasure hunting and a look at the supplies that you will need, it then delves into a survey of the 'lost' treasures that are out there just waiting to be claimed. Continent by continent, the book covers the legends of hidden locations like El Dorado, King Solomon's Mines, and the Sanctuary of Thoth, as well as covering the most illustrious lost artifacts such as the Holy Grail, the Hanjo Masamune, and the Crystal Skulls.

If your interest lies with the loot rather than the history, the book also discusses Nazi gold, pirate treasure, and the hoard of Dracula. This book is your first step towards becoming the pistol-toting, fedora-wearing international tomb robber and treasure hunter you've always dreamt of being!
