Fact: In the late 1800s, a spinster schoolteacher spent a summer in the Washington mountains searching for gold.
Legend: Emelina Fleetwood found the gold -- and used it to buy five pairs of gemstone earrings, each in the shape of her favorite flowers. Before she died, she buried the treasure, then drew a map of the spot.
Legacy: Well, one part of the legend is true. A crudely drawn map has been handed down to each generation of Fleetwood women. And if that's true, surely the rest of the legend must be. At least that's what Sarah Fleetwood believes -- and she's the current owner of the map. Gideon Trace, the treasure hunter she's hired to help her, isn't so sure. But Sarah is convinced he's some kind of hero, and if that's enough to keep her close to him, Gideon's more than willing to share the adventure.
