About the Author:

W.C. Jameson Bio:

W.C. Jameson is the award-winning and best-selling author of more than seventy books and over 1,500 articles and essays. In addition, he is an accomplished songwriter and performer, having recorded five albums of his original music and acted in five films. He has written the soundtracks for four films, and wrote and performed in the musical, “Whatever Happened to the Outlaw, Jesse James?”


Jameson is the best-selling treasure author in the world. Perhaps he is known best, as the creator of the popular Buried Treasures of America series for August House. His success and fame as a professional treasure hunter has led to appearances on television's “Unsolved Mysteries,” the Travel Channel, the Discovery Channel, Nightline, and National Public Radio. He also consulted with the production team for the highly successful feature film, “National Treasure,” starring Nicholas Cage. One of Jameson's most popular books is Billy the Kid: Beyond the Grave, a regional bestseller. This controversial book presents stunning evidence that the famous outlaw, Billy the Kid, was not killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett in 1881 but went on to live an adventurous and productive life for the next sixty-nine years.


Jameson has won numerous awards for his writing from a number of professional associations. A nationally recognized and honored author, he has served as a judge for several prestigious literary competitions. When not on an expedition or writing a book, Jameson tours the country performing his music at folk festivals, colleges and universities, concert halls, and roadhouses.

Review:

[W]ill wet the appetite of anyone intrigued by the magic words buried treasure. --Mike Cox "Austin American Statesman ""

These treasure stories encourage dreams of riches and high adventure. They also serve as written record of what previously existed primarily in an oral tradition. Both young and general readers will find stimulating reading here.--Sally Dooley "Review Of Texas Books "

Great entertainment for the armchair adventurer.--Judyth Rigler "Waco Herald-Tribune "

The author knows how to weave good stories and get the gold fever flowing.--Si Dunn "Dallas Morning News "

Jameson, a professional treasure hunter, teacher, and editor, continues his "Buried Treasure" series, which now numbers over a dozen titles. Jameson is a good storyteller and has done extensive research in tracking down all these tales. ... These could be popular with younger readers and may even be highly requested in areas specific to the various titles.--John Kenny "Library Journal "
