Welcome to the Rocky Mountains, home of bandits and bounty hunters; trappers and tommyknockers; scouts, searchers and skinwalkers. Within these peaks live the stories of fabled golden cities, long-lost Confederate treasure, a dancehall girl who braved an epidemic, and shape-shifting spirits that haunt the desert, just to name a few. This site is dedicated to these stories.

Here you will find America’s lesser-known legends — some of them old, others more recent and in-the-making — book and movie reviews, and original essays. Adamjamesjones.com is also the personal website for, you guessed it, Adam James Jones. Adam is a novelist, essayist, and filmmaker who apparently now writes about himself in the third-person.
