The Thrill of the Chase Wins BIG…

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.

The Thrill of the Chase by Forrest Fenn

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.

  1. Love your post (as always). Have you seen the March issue of Robb Report? Forrest Fenn (and the treasure) are featured on the back page.

    • Thank you Irene. I did see that story. Did you notice the David Foxhoven credit in the margin? Is that for the photo? Nice interview and a great photo. Readers can subscribe to the digital edition of the Robb Report through Amazon Books and read it by the glowing light of their own computer.

      • For those readers that don’t own a radio Irene is the host of the program FOCUS syndicated on Clear Channel radio stations across the country. She is also the author of several fascinating books including Sisters On The Fly about Caravaning Cowgirls, the trailers they restore and their life around the campfire. She is a storyteller extraordinaire…in the great tradition of the American West…don’t miss her or her books…
        I can’t tag a link in this comment section so you’ll have to copy and paste..but you can read more about Irene here:
