From the Introduction to Treasure Diaries:
A treasure hunt through the centuries…
“Before you is a real life odyssey depicting lost riches and forgotten American history in Gloucester, Virginia, and the communities across the dividing river, named York. These nearby towns of Yorktown, Jamestown, Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, and the many hamlets – collectively referred to as the Virginia Peninsula – are names that resonate through American lore. Besides proximity, they have all been tied together by people and events for nearly half a millennium.
“ This is not a trek that can be told through a single generational experience, but through many, including my generation, from a young boy into adulthood. I did not realize I was a part of the story until later in my life. Underlying all the coincidences that I discovered is a particular secret of a family’s heritage that includes mysteries of hidden fortunes interwoven into the fabric of history.
“The depictions in this experience are graced with a lifetime of discoveries and ancestors’ experiences as expressed in their letters, ship logs, and diaries as interpreted in translation to the twenty-first century. These selected and thematic perspectives are sometimes presented separately and sometimes interwoven together to tell the intricate story and better explain history’s influences on a special place, its people, and its hidden treasures to reveal – the Secret of Sarah’s Creek.”
