If you haven’t ordered your copy of Forrest’s book yet…maybe you should before they’re all gone.
“Wonderful”, “Exquisite” and “Beautiful” are just some of the attributes judges wielded to acknowledge Forrest’s memoir, The Thrill of the Chase.
These spirited accolades came from judges in the 19th Annual Writer’s Digest Awards. One judge wrote that the book is “exceptionally creative”…”life mingled with a hidden treasure”. Another wrote that the story is “exciting” and that Forrest’s interaction with the reader is a good idea “for younger audiences to appreciate”.
I may not qualify as one of his book’s younger readers but I found it compelling and fascinating. I read the entire book, cover to cover, in one sitting. I think it’s fair to say I was enthralled…and I’m not even talking about the chapter that describes his treasure hunt. Forrest’s life is fascinating and his writing style has been described as humorous, folksy and lovely. It’s also a “must read” for anyone looking for his treasure.
The book also garnered a tie for first place in the National Indie Excellence Book Awards in the “Memoir” division.
And the awards just keep on coming because Margie Goldsmith won second place for a fascinating Huffington Post article she wrote about Forrest and his book…and, of course, the treasure. Her story is titled “A $2million Treasure Hunt in Santa Fe.
