Riassunto: An Adventure. In November 1511, the Portuguese ship Flor De La Mar sank in the Strait of Malacca off Malaysia. It was carrying sixty tons of gold, plundered from the Malaccan kingdom. In today's terms the cargo would be worth as much as $3 billion. Nobody has ever claimed to have found the wreck or the treasure. 
Don't believe everything you haven't heard! 
Hank Evans has a story to tell. It's been bangin' on his insides trying to get out something fierce. It involves shipwrecks, airplanes, friendships, a cowgirl, and a bunch of faith. So on those winter nights, the ones where the cold air seeps through his windows and makes the fire jitter and pop, he starts to think again about those days, just trying to make sense of it all. He's gonna tell you his story. Will you believe?

The Kingdom Treasure is a general fiction novel, based upon historical events in the Pacific just prior to World War II. The story is told by main character Hank Evans as he recounts his adventures in Southeast Asia in 1940, as a twenty-year old expatriate cowboy from Idaho. Hank experiences a region in turmoil. The Japanese Army has invaded China, and much of Asia will soon fall to the Japanese Empire. Hank tells a captivating story through the eyes of a misplaced cowboy, with insight, humor, and realism.

Hank and three friends, a skilled American pilot, an enigmatic Tibetan, and a playful Filipino pearl diver, race from Burma to Malaysia to find the wreck of the Portuguese ship Flor De La Mar before the Japanese Army's inevitable arrival. The factual ship sank in the Strait of Malacca in November 1511, carrying sixty tons of gold plundered from the Malaccan kingdom.

The four friends believe they know the location of the wreck, and they know the treasure can either fund charity or prolonged conflict. During a dangerous journey they experience the impact of strife, the kindness of strangers, and the power of friendship. The turmoil of war is a constant challenge, requiring ingenuity, faith, and sacrifice. 

Join Hank on the adventure of a lifetime.

Dall'autore: We landed uneventfully at the airfield just outside the old walled city.  I grabbed my rucksack.  Lhasa and I left the plane in good hands.  I suddenly realized that all my belongings and responsibilities fit neatly on my back.  Within the last twenty four hours I had been relieved of one airplane, three tons of cargo, a dozen Japanese soldiers, and fifteen years of my life.  I had gained a load of faith, preserved my sense of humor, and had Lhasa at my side.  All three of which were virtually weightless.  My burden was as light as a wallet at the end of the month.

That's a quote from the main character Hank Evans in my book THE KINGDOM TREASURE.  At this point in the story, Hank is far from home, in an unfamiliar land, and thankfully still alive after a harrowing experience.  When I wrote it, I thought about how it feels to be safe at home.  To be surrounded by the comforts we enjoy.  By the good stuff.  But what really makes home feel like...well...home?  Is it the stuff in our living room?  Or is it the people - the conversations - the memories in our living room

I've been a fan of the rock band U2 for many years.  Bono sings two great lines in the song "Beautiful Day":
What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow

Simple but powerful.  At the end of the day, does stuff make us happy?  Or are we more profound than that?  I believe relationships, and knowledge, and memories really make us happy.  Sometimes we (I) just forget that.

When I graduated from college and moved to Southern California, everything I owned fit in the back of my Honda Accord hatchback.  I had $50 to my name.  In cash.  In my wallet.

My wallet was, well, as light as a wallet at the end of the month.  At the end of the month just before payday.  Only my payday wasn't for three weeks.  I'm sure you've experienced that yourself, and may be experiencing it now.  I know it's difficult and perhaps scary.  As I matter of pride, I decided to live on that $50 and not ask anyone, including my parents, for help.  It was a tough time.  Ultimately I didn't make it.  I had to borrow some money to get me through to my first paycheck.

But when I think back to that time, I was wonderfully free!  I didn't have a bunch of things to take care of.  I could focus completely on exploring my new city.  On making new friends, and on starting well in my new job.  Exciting times!  On a shoestring!   It was like college, when I often lived on buttered noodles with a bit of Kraft Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.  Those were the days!  That stuff tasted great.  My roommate bought the cheapest beer ever and it tasted fantastic on a Friday evening with friends.

Here's the deal.  I can't fit my belongings in the back of a Honda Accord hatchback anymore.  Life is just that way sometimes.  But I'm still not inspired by stuff, and I still have great memories of when I had very little.  Just like Hank Evans.  So when I wrote THE KINGDOM TREASURE, I was focused on a historical fiction adventure.  But the process ultimately helped me to focus on the good stuff, and not on the stuff stuff.  Know what I mean?
