Kentucky author Ron Elliott will be at Barnes & Noble in Elizabethtown signing copies of his book published earlier this year, “American El Dorado: The Great Diamond Hoax of 1872,” on Saturday, July 27.
The book digs deep into the true story of Philip Arnold and John Slack, Kentucky natives and cousins, and their conjuring of a fake diamond mine scheme in 1872. The scheme was so convincing that many investors threw themselves in hoping to make a profit on the findings. This made the cousins rich for a time until it was found out that it was a hoax.
