In the debut award winning novel that launched this HTN enterprise, Jackson Badgenoone considers the High Water Markers of life. Jackson draws inspiration for the theme after observing the Dutch Buffalo Creek. On page 41 of that book, readers discover that, “High Water Markers provide tangible evidence of the advance and retreat of creeks, streams, rivers, and oceans. Metaphorically they also provide the measuring stick for citizens, nations, enterprise and empire… Civilian title after a name, the number of boxes under a box on an organization chart, a corporation balance sheet… A few are life-changing events, a birth, a spiritual epiphany, a wedding, a divorce, a death.” The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek, page 41.
