Hidden away with every lost treasure is a story; and brothers Jesse and Josh Feldman are on a mission to hunt them.

Every hunt is grounded in history as they scour the American frontier for old maps, diaries, records and locals with intimate knowledge of the area.

Throughout each episode their dogged determination, taste for adventure and reverence for the past uncover new leads, fresh perspectives on history and even gold.

And, as the Feldman brothers explore each mystery, they realise that treasure comes in different forms.
