Author Barry Storm was born June 4, 1910 in the state of Washington, Barry Storm s given name was John G. Climenson. It s unknown where he attended school, but it appears that he graduated from high school. Moving to Arizona in the 1930s, he worked at odd jobs and as a part time reporter. Climenson explored the deserts around Phoenix, Arizona, and was particularly interested in the Superstition Mountains. He was fascinated by the history of the early miners from Mexico. He met Barry Goldwater, who also liked to spend time hiking and photographing the deserts, and they went on trips to the Superstition Mountains together. Barry Goldwater would later publish John s first book, Trail of the Lost Dutchman, in 1939. John Climenson was then 29 years old. He created the pen name Barry Storm, and this became his new identity. Storm s book, Thunder Gods Gold, was used as the basis for the 1949 motion picture, 'Lust for Gold,' starring Glenn Ford. Barry Storm died on May 18, 1971(desertusa.com accessed 15 July 2019)
