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.
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.
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. I wasn't ready to let go of Sarah and her world." - The Book Vixen "There is some great racing action and great character-development on the part of the three main characters. It was really a joy to watch develop." - Crystal, My Reading Room "Thrill of the Chase is a high octane ride that will throw you for a loop." - J. 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
Non-fiction provides a complete solution to the Thrill of the Chase a memoir and follows the treasure trail to where the chest was hidden.
“Daniel Barbarisi plunges into an adventure from another era when he goes in search of buried treasure, guided only by a cryptic poem, a mischievous art collector, and the footsteps another pursuer who died on the quest… Every page draws you deeper into this no-man’s-land where fortune—or tragedy—awaits.” —Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run When Forrest Fenn was given a fatal cancer diagnosis, he came up with a bold plan: He would hide a chest full of jewels and gold in the wilderness, and publish a poem that would serve as a map leading to the treasure's secret location. But he didn't die, and after hiding the treasure in 2010, Fenn instead presided over a decade-long gold rush that saw many thousands of treasure hunters scrambling across the Rocky Mountains in pursuit of his fortune. Daniel Barbarisi first learned of Fenn's hunt in 2017, when a friend became consumed with decoding the poem and convinced Barbarisi, a reporter, to document his search. What began as an attempt to capture the inner workings of Fenn's hunt quickly turned into a personal quest that led Barbarisi down a reckless and potentially dangerous path, one that found him embroiled in searcher conspiracies and matching wits with Fenn himself. Over the course of four chaotic years, several searchers would die, endless controversies would erupt, and one hunter would ultimately find the chest. But the mystery didn't end there. Full of intrigue, danger, and break-neck action, Chasing the Thrill is a riveting tale of desire, obsession, and unbridled adventure.
The Fenn Treasure was a cache of gold and jewels that Forrest Fenn, an art dealer and author from Santa Fe, New Mexico, hid in the Rocky Mountains of the United States. Follow me through my journey of solving the poem written by Forrest Fenn. The solution to the poem would guide any searcher to a treasure chest hidden in the Rocky Mountains. The search had been going on for 10 years until it ended in June of 2020. The disappointing ending published was filled with lies and deceit.
Men need to hunt. Women need to sustain the possibility that capture is eminent while slipping free of ultimate and final capture. In order to play a game of chase, both must be aware it is a playful, simply a game. Both must agree on the basic rules together. Then let the games begin. Once a man agrees a woman may say no at any time, the possibilities are endless. The delight is sustainable. The chemistry is ignited. The connection if very satisfying.
There are many hunting adventure books in print, but few that exclusively deal with women hunters. Etling and Reneau researched their subject well, and many of the women profiled are among the top hunters in the world. The authors discovered hundreds of bright, articulate women who love to hunt big game, and they culled the best stories from these women for this book.
This book describes five years of adventure experienced by one Forrest Fenn treasure hunter and his searcher friends. The preface provides a summary of how his ground search experiences were driven from complex to simplified "Moby Dick" solutions to the chase poem. This overview is followed by a detailed analysis of the hints and clues that supported his Moby Dick solution. While history will likely establish that Melville's Moby Dick was not a core element of the winning solve, this book narrative will hopefully provide insight to non-searchers about the sorts of intellectual and emotional rewards that were associated with this treasure hunt. This is a prototypic solve, and each step in building this compelling evidentiary base was personally rewarding. The author provides first-hand examples of the risks posed to searchers regarding confirmation biases and rabbit holes. Coincidences are inevitable in all detective searches for presumed fact associations. This story also describes the evolution of an unfit flatlander with no hunting or wildness experience into a seasoned amateur treasure hunter with a hundred miles of risk exposure. So while this solve may be viewed as Exhibit A for futile problem solving effort, the fun of crafting these hypotheses should not be understated. This book advances stories and ideas that should be of general interest to the chase community, specialized interest to behavioral scientists, and keen personal interest to citizens of Buffalo and Bighorn Mountain hikers. This book also includes references to many seasoned searchers who contributed enormously to the chase literature. It seems a certainty that success in this treasure hunt required indirect assistance from a great many talented searchers who graciously contributed to the chase literature.
