The Red River story has remained a best kept secret, largely in part due to President Jefferson's embarrassment over the 1806 Freeman-Custis Expedition's failure at the hands of the Spanish; brought about by the, "Aaron Burr/Wilkinson conspiracy."Every river has a story that can only be told by someone that knows her history and her heart. Red River was always "Treasure River." She just needed Wildwood Dean to tell her story. Allen Rich, North Texas e-News.Treasure River, by Wildwood Dean, meanders along the Red River of the early 19th century with tales of trappers, whiskey dealers and treasure hunters. Yellow Beard, reared by his Wichita Indian mother, has not given up the dream of finding his treasure-hunting father. Jac Colter seeks to make his fortune, in part as recompense for an act of treachery against his father. Smuggling prohibited whiskey to the trappers proves a risky if profitable proposition. Want to know how to make frontier whiskey? Here you'll find the recipe, right down to the rattlesnake heads. In this saga the author lovingly chronicles the imperfect individuals who sought their destinies wherever the streams could take them.Lydia Hawke, author of Firetrail and Perfect Disguise It is astounding that a short 200 years ago, it was more profitable to lose your identity than to steal some one else's; that, the best way to travel from New Orleans to St. Louis was via a steam-driven, wood-eating river boat! In the early 1800's the number one cash crop of the United States was the skin of a beaver. In all probability the second largest cash crop was whisky, until Congress passed a bill in 1832 excluding spirituous liquors from the Indian country. Read and listen: Turmoil, anguish, struggle, faith, patience, harmony and romance make up the emotional maze found in Treasure River! They have been hidden underneath the quite waters of Red River.
