Daniel McPherson is single, twenty-nine years old, and although he makes his living as a trash collector, he dreams of becoming a con man. Never mind that every scheme he has ever thought up has been doomed to failure, he is certain that this time his "can't fail idea" will succeed.
When Danny finds a box of leather bound genealogy journals he thinks that he has found a way to easy riches. The journals contain detailed information about what, he believes to be, one of the wealthiest families in Colorado.
The idea is to convince this large and scattered family that he is one of them, and therefore entitled to share some of the fortune; he hasn't exactly figured out how he is going to accomplish this, but is determined to try anyway.
Sometimes the best get rich schemes are not schemes at all...just fate.
And a little luck.
