Hidden Treasure Novels plans to publish a range of novels, novellas and short stories. It began with Next Generation Indie Book Awards 2016 Finalist Award winning novel for general fiction, "The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek" by Jackson Badgenoone, (pronounced Badge-no-one). That story begins to unfold in current day Cabarrus County, North Carolina. In the year 2014, an aging man, named James, thinks that he finds gold in the Dutch Buffalo Creek bed. Instead, he discovers a bayonet that was buried by a Hessian soldier named Frederick, who had deserted the British cause during the War for American Independence. The blade had been covered by water and mud for over two-hundred years.

The story morphs into the translucent memoirs of ten souls, beginning with Frederick. The other nine include James and Frederick's distant relatives, who emerged in the twentieth century. Each of them helps James to consider another kind of treasure. Ultimately, his grandchildren bring the search to a measure of closure.

The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek was an engaging read from start to finish. The plot construction is inventive. The characters seem all too real. The search for treasure leads to wealth not measured by silver or gold. I can see why the book won a Next Generation Award.
