Lost Gold Plot: What is it about?
Brothers Josh and Jesse Feldman are cowboys from Arizona with a family history steeped in old country lore and gold mines. They own a horse ranch, are wilderness guides, and even own a gold mine. But most importantly they are treasure hunters. They love adventure and are history fanatics. They search for old diaries, maps, records, and even befriend the locals to unravel deep secrets from the past. They put themselves in the shoes of the people from that era, and this gives viewers a chance to live the history with them.
Josh and Jesse want us to remember our history and culture while giving us serious wanderlust goals. The first episode ‘The Lost Cochise Strongboxes’ takes the brothers to southeast Arizona, deep into the rugged deserts there on their journey to uncover the mystery of an Apache Chief who reportedly buried two boxes full of gold somewhere in the mountains. In the episode, Lost Adams Diggings — arguably the most popular mines of the Southwest, we see the brothers travel deep into the desert in search of gold. They discover a hidden canyon which is possibly what they had been looking for.

Humankind is known to be fascinated with the past because, without the knowledge of history, we will never be able to build a great future for ourselves. The great reveal in the end and all the lessons we learn along the way makes this a rather compelling watch. If you are someone who enjoys travel and history shows, Lost Gold is perfect for you. The show has a wide audience appeal and can be enjoyed by everyone. Each episode is based on a true historical story, and a lot of research goes into planning every episode. Sometimes the places can be dangerous and very remote. Overall the show looks great and will have you hooked.
Jesse and Josh and believe that their desire for adventure and mysteries is ingrained in their blood, having grown up with their father seeking answers to lost treasures. “We didn’t have a choice! Well before we were born, our dad came to Arizona in search of the Lost Dutchman, a legendary lost gold mine believed to be in the Superstition Mountains, and we grew up in that treasure-seeking culture,” Jesse said. “Our dad might as well have been Indiana Jones to us, and we got to go along with him on his adventures. But it isn’t the treasure itself that really attracts us. It’s the chance to find history by bringing stories to life,” added Josh.
