A Leon Gaspard Question To f

Dear Forrest

I was just wondering if you might answer a question, I can share with all searchers.
If you do answer, I will post your response on the forums and my blog.
The question is: is there any type of intensional clues or hint in Leon Gaspard The Call of Distant Places?

Thank you, Rick

Forrest responds

No, there are no clues or hints in my Gaspard biography. f

“Gaspard” A Searchers Point of View

A view of Leon Gaspard from a searchers standpoint

 I’m really kinda left for words as this book took me by surprise. The 410 pages of this book will leave you wanting more;More from the writers, more from the storyteller, and more from the artist. The vibrant artwork used to illustrate The Call of Distant Places is eye catching and Really does bring life to the stories within. I believe Forrest and Carleen hit a home run with this one. From the moment I read the preface, I knew I was going to enjoy every page. As I read, I noticed Forrest and Leon both share some of the same qualities. Both share the love of adventure and their creative ability for storytelling. Maybe that’s what draws me in, the love of adventure and a good yarn.

  Sense I’m writing this as a searchers point of view, I feel I need to try to answer the one question many searchers are wanting to know “Is this book treasure related?”. To me “Yes” I believe it is. From the very beginning I began to notice small hints toward The Thrill of the Chase. Maybe it was the way Forrest used many of the same words he teases us with all the time or it could even be the way some of the stories leave you wondering;Stories of secret missions, hidden objects, and secret places. I’m not going lie, I really thought Forrest was going to tell the location of indulgence. Who knows, maybe he did and I just didn’t pick up on it. If you read Leon Gaspard, you will not suffer any disappointment. The book is very well written and the illustrations are beautiful. I even love that the chapter nine cover page, has the same map as my homepage. So to Forrest Fenn and Carleen Milburn, I have to say “I loved it!”.

The Call of Distant Places

August 24, 2015 I received my invite from Forrest

to attend the book signing in Santa Fe

I just now got around to reading Leon Gaspard

I have to say, I can’t put it down

This story is very intriguing and I actually feel

as if I’m right there in the story as I read along.

There is a story at the end of chapter two where

A man purchases a painting from Gaspard and the man

uses all the money he has to buy the painting. When Gaspard 

Realizes the man had no money to take home to His family, 

he gives the man some of the money back and the man hugs Gaspard. 

This is so well written, I actually felt the hug, when I read it...


I can’t believe I waited so long to read this book

Carleen Milburn and Forrest Fenn have done an outstanding job

writing the story of Leon Gaspard.

I’ve never been big on reading but I’ve always found it the best

way to learn. Forrest has changed that for me, I find myself

reading more frequently but now I feel a sense of enjoyment

along with the learning. Thank you, Forrest

I have not finished reading this yet and don’t want to

ruin the story for others but I had to stop reading and share

what I’m experiencing with The Call of Distant Places

If you have not read this yet, your missing out…
