Searching for Confederate Gold

Diane M. Wylie, Author of Romance and Adventure

Have you seen the History Channel show, Brad Meltzer's Decoded? There was an episode of the show that came on at the end of December about hunting for buried gold. Legend has it that the Confederates amassed a fortune in gold and treasure and buried it with the goal of using it later to fund an insurrection to get the South out of the Union.

How I wish that I could get Brad Meltzer to read my novel, ADAM'S TREASURE. What treasure was Adam searching for in my book? Why, the exact same Confederate gold featured in the TV show!

If you get a chance to watch that show, you will find it fascinating that the Knights of the Golden Circle was a secret society formed to protect the gold. Rumor has it that the society still exists. Hmm, maybe?

So, if you like this topic, check out ADAM'S TREASURE, and read a fictional account of how it could have turned out.
