A year later I was in Kanab again, this time spending the day with a film crew from “America Unearthed,” a top-rated show that airs on the History Channel 2. Together we explored the mysterious 500-year-old cave near Kanab that a man named Freddie Crystal excavated in search of Montezuma’s gold. (See a promo video of Montezuma’s Gold.)After that, I knew I had to write a book about Freddie Crystal and Montezuma’s gold in Southern Utah, but I didn’t want it to be a historical novel. So I ended up with Robbed of Soul, a modern-day mystery that incorporates historical facts and legends.
The following are pictures of me and Scott Wolter taken as we filmed segments of America Unearthed near the infamous Freddie Crystal cave in Johnson Canyon outside of Kanab, Utah.
