Otherworldly ghostwriters (the “Neverborn”) compose biographies for ordinary people in this playfully metafictional novel. James is a strong central character whose memories from the 1950s through the present give a sense of history’s sweep, while vivid descriptive language enlivens the settings. Although well written, the book as a whole is an unusual amalgam of spiritualism, historical nostalgia, and technology.

The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek is a wonderful masterpiece of writing. A historical account as well as an adventure of a family woven across four centuries and a man’s journey of finding the treasure of life. Jackson Badgenoone edits several authors, none of which have ever walked the earth in physical form, but only observing the lives of living individuals, into a historical, unforgettable event.
The novel begins with James finding an old bayonet with a very unique past. The story

What do you see when you look out at a meadow or a hill, a creek or an ocean? Jackson Badgenoone sees life.

A feminine Jackson acquired her first name from some testosterone driven namesakes.

Her surname was assigned to her as a consequence of her desire to ghost write a story in the twenty-first century.

She was asked to make some sense of the conflict that permeates civilization.
