The Lost Treasure of Captain Kidd (1990-1994)

This novel comes directly out of the Hudson canoe journey. One story always leads to another, and then another, and so on. In Kingston, New York, I met a boat captain named John Cutten who told me the pirate story of Captain Kidd burying treasure on the Hudson. He and I spent many hours wandering the shores of the river thinking about the treasure that is said to still be hidden somewhere along the river's banks. In the next few years, I hope to write more novels like this, stories which come directly out of my travels.
