There are stories of hidden treasure throughout the West, but John Koyle's belief in the "Relief Mine" went deeper than mere legend. Koyle was known as something of a prophet in his community. In 1894 he had a dream about riches in the mountains of Utah County, and he predicted these would be found at a time of great peril for the nation. Friday, we're talking about what's also called the "Dream Mine" and about why there are people who still believe. (Rebroadcast)
