Meet the Author

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.

    I recommend this novel.
    Slavery is the underlying antagonist in this story. It is told through the eyes of Abraham, from his maturation during the Battle of New Orleans, to running his tobacco plantation in North Carolina, pioneer-first in Indiana, then Missouri, and lastly in his friendship for Andres. Throughout, the slaver Hooker tangles with Abraham. Yet, it is Big Jen, General Jackson's scout, who instructs Abraham that "God doesn't care the color of a man's skin; it's inside him where you find the mettle of a man."
    The story ranges over the initial battle, to conceiving a new way to provide workers for his tobacco fields that doesn't rely on slave labor, to the pioneering bug to go west.
    Indiana provides the settling for encountering Indians and that chapter and the last are as heartfelt as any I have read. This writer does capture your emotions and takes you along on Abraham's near half-century tale.
