About The Author

This is a 5 State Treasure Hunt that starts out at $50,000 and only goes up from there as the adventure continues. Cris Dotson has created a series of stories that will move you in more directions than you could ever imagine. His wife Julie is right there helping you understand some of those stories and telling you her point of view from some of those experiences too. Cris is also a master of disguise and an artist that will give you your moneys worth and more than 1000 words a picture with over 100 illustrations for your eyes to feast on. Cris has also partnered with the same cartographers that brought you the Forrest Fenn map to bring you yet another beautiful layout of land and water. It’ll take a strong heart, mind and time to get through this just as it did the Dotson’s. We wish you luck.
