Richard Puz’s books are well researched. They bring to life the stories of American settlers who lived two centuries ago. He has journeyed throughout the world and has spent months traveling across America to search out the locations for his books. His novels are currently in a series called Six Bulls. These include Avenge, Six Bulls-The Ohioans, and The Carolinian. His latest novel, Bride by Mail, is being published in 2013. It is the last book in his Six Bulls series.The novels in the Six Bulls series draw from family tales about settlers who journeyed to the American frontier in the 1800s. Their stories, passed down through the generations, paint pictures of courageous and adventurous people—a hearty lot—who had perseverance, self reliance, and, despite dangers and the unknown, overcame their fears. Most were not famous or widely celebrated, yet they carved out homes, farms, and a life on the frontier, and, in the process, created a great nation.His observations follow:"American settlers are heroes in my eyes, and it is an honor to include some of their folklore in my novels."From my research, I have a better understanding of the Native American’s plight. Despite being fierce and resourceful, they were ultimately swept aside by the oncoming tide of settlers. There came a time for understanding and compassion by the conquering invaders. In too many instances, this did not occur, and that disgraceful stain is part of our historical legacy."Like those ancestors, I, too, am on a journey, too."

VERY GOOD! I always enjoy Puz's stories, because I invariably learn something. I never knew that Native Americans were enslaved in the South. (In this case NC.)
