BOOK BLURB: An Heirloom edition of award-winning novel. The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek, provides additional notes, personal logs and resources.
" An aging man named James thinks he sees gold in the Dutch Buffalo Creek.
Instead he finds a bayonet that had been buried in the mud for over two centuries.
A Hessian soldier abandoned the blade during the War for American Independence. He also gifted a gold ring
to his comrade-in-arms, and then repudiated the conflict.
The bayonet and the ring prompt James to search through a den full of artifacts and books to discover the meaning of the metal.
His search leads him to discover spiritual treasures."
About the author: Vincent James Vezza writes this book under the pseudonym of Jackson Badgenoone, pronounced Badge-No-One. Translucent memoirs of family members are woven into historical fiction. Jackson penned a sequel novella, Neverborn, published in April 2018.
Both books amplify the message that we are called by name to salvation. The novel culminates with a quote from Isaiah 45:3, not as a justification for a current day political prophesy but as a reminder that we are called by name to be saved. The sequel novella inspired by 2 Chronicles 7:14 reminds us that we are called by His name.
Under his given name, Vincent recently published a short story titled The Cranny. Ten other books are scheduled for publication. The list is available at his publisher website, www.hiddentreasurenovels.com

Sounds like a fascinating and entertaining read.
A bayonet seems so personal. You would have to be close to your enemy to use it .
I think the gold ring will win because love conquers all.
1. A Bayonet is an up close and personal weapon, unlike the gun it is attached to, which shoots from afar.
I am hoping that my view of a gold ring; that being
one of love and devotion, prevails at the end of your

I like the idea of this story. I think the ring may be most important.
