Overview

Bulow Gold is a well researched story of the Bulow family and their Florida Plantation dreams after the American Revolution. It is the story of the death of a dream in the Second Seminole War and a possible great treasure.

Follow the lost journal of "Aunty Mary" the slave and unique housekeeper of the famous Bulow family of Florida and North Carolina. The Bulows had immense wealth. They built one of the largest plantations in Florida in the year 1821. Here is the courage and planning of Charles Wilhelm Bulow who dies all too soon. His dream is taken by his young son John Joachim Bulow who will gather an immense treasure in gold, one that will vanish in 1835. It will be pursued by many. Does the great treasure really exist?

This well researched tale takes you from 1812 to present time as two middle aged geneology researchers meet "Lizzie" a very strange young girl who may hold a key to the past. "Aunty Mary" was sold as a young girl to the Bulow family and rises in their trust. Lizzie can offer the voice of Aunty Mary speaking from her journal of events in the past. The building a major plantation, Indian Wars, the life of a slave, the life and adventures in colonial Florida all emerge into present time. Here is rich detail of Florida life including the Black Seminoles, the Second Seminole War.

Bulow Gold is a combination of historical facts and a story that author Bill Ryan named as "factual historic fiction.""It is what I think really happened. Characters and events are as real as I could find," he said. Young John Joachim Bulow dies and is buried in St. Augustine, a bit of history not well known. The location of his wealth may have vanished with him, or perhaps not.
