Road to the Buffalo

Lost Dutchman Mine

Author Carl W.Haywood

began researching his first book about North West Company Explorer David Thompson shortly after he returned to Montana in 2003 taking up residence in Thompson Falls — Thompson's namesake.
In 1809, David Thompson built a trading post near present day Thompson Falls. He kept a journal where he recorded his coordinates for the trading post and his travels through the area. These coordinates gave Haywood and wife, Linda, the information needed to track Thompson.
After nearly 5 years researching and tracking Thompson, Haywood published David Thompson The Saleesh House Period 1807–1812, better known as Sometimes Only Horses to Eat.
Haywood's second book, In Search of Howse House, is primarily about Joseph Howse, the first Hudson's Bay Company fur trader to cross the Rocky Mountains in search of beaver and the builder of the first HBC post on the west side.
For his third book, Haywood tells his 1962 true-life adverture about four friends' trek into the Arizona's Superstition Mountains to explore the lore and legends surrounding the century-old mystery about the location of the of famed Lost Dutchman Mine.
