RULES: IMPORTANT RULES FOR ALL TREASURE HUNTERS:
BY PARTICIPATING IN THE TREASURE HUNT, YOU AGREE TO ABIDE BY AND BE FULLY BOUND BY THE FOLLOWING RULES. DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE TREASURE HUNT UNLESS AND UNTIL (A) YOU HAVE READ AND FULLY UNDERSTAND EACH OF THESE RULES AND (B) YOU ARE AN ELIGIBLE PARTICIPANT AS DEFINED BELOW.
- ELIGIBILITY. Participation in this hunt is available only to individuals aged 18 and over who are not current or former employees or independent contractors of ISOW, Inc. a/k/a International School of the Word (“ISOW”) or Voice of Evangelism Outreach Ministries (“VOE”), including but not limited to Manna-Fest, Omega Center International Church, Perry Stone Ministries, or any other d/b/a or department of VOE. Current and former family members of current or former employees or independent contractors of VOE and ISOW are also ineligible to participate. Current and former employees and independent contractors of VOE and ISOW and their family members may not search for the key or provide any assistance to anyone participating in the hunt. Any finder who receives assistance from any such person shall automatically be disqualified from receipt of the treasure. Any individual under the age of 18 may participate in the hunt only with the close supervision of a parent or legal guardian.
- RELEASE OF LIABILITY. By participating in the hunt in any fashion, the participant covenants and agrees, on his or her own behalf and on behalf of his or her family members and dependents, that the participant and his or her family and dependents will hold harmless and fully release and indemnify VOE, ISOW, and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents, as well as Perry Stone, from any liability whatsoever for any death, injury, property damage, or property loss incurred by the participant or his or her family or dependents as a direct or indirect result of participation in the treasure hunt. In other words, the participant and his or her family and dependents will not sue Perry Stone, ISOW, VOE, or their directors, officers, employees, or agents even if the participant claims to have been harmed by the negligence of Perry Stone, ISOW, VOE, or their directors, officers, employees, or agents.
- ASSUMPTION OF RISK. VOE and the book’s author, Perry Stone, make no representations or warranties as to the safety or level of risk associated with participation in this treasure hunt. Participation in the treasure hunt is at the participant’s own risk. Each participant is responsible for his or her own safety and the safety of friends or family members searching with them. While the key is not in an inherently dangerous place, any outdoor activity, including this search, includes some risk. Our beautiful Appalachian Mountains can have natural dangers, such as snakes, bears, biting insects, fires, heights, mines, and caves. Sometimes there are floods, lightning, hail, heavy rain, snow, and ice. It is important to stay hydrated, and equally important not to become lost in the forest. Before proceeding with a search destination, fully educate yourself concerning the details and risks of any outdoor exploration and take any needed precautions.
- CLAIMING THE TREASURE. The treasure can be yours if you follow these rules and solve the mystery concealed in this book. When the fortunate treasure hunter retrieves the key, along with the container in which it is concealed, the finder must contact Perry Stone or VOE in Cleveland, Tennessee, and present the key and container in person, along with an explanation of HOW they interpreted the clues to find the location of the key. With the key and the explanation of how they solved the mystery using clues from the book, the finder of the key will receive the treasure.
- PUBLICITY. A participant who solves the clues and retrieves the key may, upon request, remain anonymous. If this choice is made, Perry Stone and VOE will retain the right to publicly reveal the winner’s gender, age, and state of residence, as well as certain facts about the winner’s experiences related to the search. Upon request by VOE, the winner will execute written consents confirming the right of VOE and the author to share such information publicly.
- RECEIPT AS-IS. The estimated current value of the treasure exceeds $500,000. This estimate is based upon expert evaluations, internet comparisons, and appraisals by professional jewelers and Holy Land antiquities dealers. The actual value of the treasure may fluctuate based on the prices of antiquities, gold, silver, diamonds, and gemstone at the time the finder takes receipt of the treasure. A participant who retrieves the key and the container, and shows how he or she solved the clues, takes all items as-is. Treasure items will not be exchanged for other items, and the treasure may not be exchanged for cash.
- DEADLINE. If the treasure is not claimed as described in these rules within two years after the public release date of the book, then Perry Stone or an assigned representative will retrieve the key and, if they so choose, reveal the general location of the hiding place.
- COMPLY WITH ALL LAWS. As you hunt for the key, you will not be digging deep holes or removing large heavy objects. DO NOT under any circumstances remove, alter, or damage any building, structure, or archaeological or protected site. DO NOT enter mines, closed-off areas, or private property. No local, state or federal laws are to be broken by participants. The key is located on public land at a location accessible throughout the year, but weather may impact a search. All “No Trespassing” signs should be respected and observed.
- EXPENSES; TAXES. Each participant is personally responsible for all expenses of searching, including their travel, living arrangements, hotel bills, fuel, food, and other expenses that may be incurred during their search efforts. The search is intended for family enjoyment and to get people out of their homes and into an environment where they will experience God’s beautiful scenery and towns throughout the Appalachian Mountains. Any taxes due on the treasure are the responsibility of the winner. All federal, state and local laws may apply.
- RULE CHANGES. VOE and the author retain the right to modify the rules or add additional rules as they deem to necessary to protect participants and/or to ensure the fairness and integrity of the search process. Any changes will be posted to the Perry Stone YouTube channel and the Perry Stone Ministries Facebook page and will take effect upon posting.

Always up for a rewarding challenge, bored and saddened by the post-covid world… I bought the book & found something that gave me fun, frustration, and an element of adventure and danger at times. Unfortunately, after 2 months of hunt and probably more than 2K in gas and expenditures…. my hunt is over until Perry gives a better clue of the final resting place of the container.
Its been a hunt that I'm sure would've gave Perry a few great shows to interview and probably an entertaining book of possible movie quality (or so I'm told). My journey involved copper heads, black snakes, a rattler, a sow bear and her cubs, unsolved very serious (felony) crime evidence discovery, along with other things of importance.
I followed this and its tricky secrets to its most logical conclusion, filmed it and took lots of pictures except of things only law enforcement are now privy to…. and it wasn't there where I could find it. I may have even stood on top of it, sat on it, or looked right at it and not recognized it. Or, I may have missed a single tiny detail that put me 20 feet away from it. What I can say is that some of the clues are so unique that one could conclude “how could all these things be anywhere else together” yet, I did find multiple locations each with specific “unique” clues on-site that seem impossible to find randomly without some sort of co-conspirator cooperation.
The book is worth the price and lots of fun for someone that needed it like I did… and the prize is valuable if you win especially to someone like me that values the sort of items you win in this hunt…. but it is not a $500,000 reward. Its only worth that if all items are sold in specific specialized venues of auction houses and collectors ready and willing to pay are present. I would love to have had it to pass on when I die…. but for now… all I can say is my hunt is on hold and wish everyone else “good luck, and happy hunting”. A word of caution: Perry has stated on video format that this hunt was inspired by the Forest Finn treasure hunt that was solved a few years ago. However, what most people don't know is that people died hunting for Forest Finn's treasure. Perry has warned multiple times that even though he believes the key is in a fairly safe location that there is always an element of danger present in any hunt and that he was nearly injured seriously in a hunt he was on. TAKE HIM SERIOUSLY ! He knows what he is talking about. Even though the resting place of the key might be somewhat safe, opening the hunt to a four state mountainous region is NOT. There are a thousand ways to die in those mountains- BE CAREFUL! Go prepared- Be cautious- you never know what's ahead when adventuring.

Fantastic treasure hunt, full of surprises and hidden information. On the scale of the 1980's “Treasure – In Search of the Golden Horse” Definitely a hidden gem. Thank you, Perry Stone.

This is so intriguing! Our family is drawn in by this hunt with all the patterns, and puzzles. Each family member is able to offer a contribution. Not one single individual can crack the code alone. Thank you for this Perry!
