What Others Are Saying
 

"I've known Dan Russell since high school and even back then he and his brother Joe were making history – they were on a quest for gold. This gold wasn't buried beneath rock and earth, but under years of hard work, trials and pain. Dan's champion spirit and determination to reach for gold are what make this story so incredible. We can all gain important 'nuggets' of wisdom from his experiences on the wrestling mat and beyond.  


 

As someone who knows a thing or two about the pursuit of gold – and the many peaks and dark valleys you can experience along the way – I can tell you that Dan knows what it means to find the true riches in life."

Dan Russell with Todd Hoffman – Gold Miner and Creator of the TV Show Gold Rush
