Reading plants and trees to find gold. This is based on tree growth being stunted by minerals that tree roots encounter in the soil. Some of such minerals are gold, silver, heavy metals and salts. Different minerals affect trees differently (look at the leaves). A grove of trees with a couple being shorter may be an indicator on where to look.. Gold may make the trees more reddish. Silver may make the trees more blueish. Salt will kill a tree. Look at the roots. Damaged roots on one side of a tree may point to a mineral vein.

The book was translated from Spanish to English by President Herbert Hoover in 1905
