I am a wild Choctaw Indian from the Mudlark bottoms in Stigler Oklahoma. As a child I grew up in the desert southwest, in and around the Casa Grande Valley in Arizona. I spent many happy hours roaming the desert and mountains learning about the animal and plant life there and why there are sea shells on the tops of the mountains. The desert can be a harsh teacher where death can come quickly to those not prepared for the constant dangers that exist. There are rattlesnakes and Gila monsters as well as coyotes,wolves,skunks,wild hogs,cougars,scorpions and centipedes.The desert is also a beautiful place that is full of life and adventure. In the solitude one can take the time to meditate and contemplate on life and the reasons thereof. One can find the Great Spirit and seek guidance on ones life path in the desert. I learned much from the desert and also from the Indians of the desert country. As an adult I have traveled over half of the states in the United States. I have worked as a field hand,ginned cotton,worked cattle,worked on a core recovery drill rig,fry cook,service station attendant,pipe line construction,welded bridges,welding shop foreman,plowed land, irrigated crops,foreman on two farms,played music at honkytonks,sold everything from grand pianos to grandfather clocks,taught meditation classes,owned stores,etcetera. I am also a master boot maker and leather artist. I have worked since I was twelve years old and have been making my own way in the world since I was sixteen. I am self-educated and I like to meditate and spend time in natural surroundings. One can gain much soul growth by seeking out a quiet place to commune with the Great Spirit. I have made a lifetime study of people,trying to learn what motivates them as they act out the drama of life. My two favorite pastimes are fishing and golfing. With fishing and golfing as hobbies you might guess how I learned to tell stories. One thing to keep in mind as you read my stories is that some of the things I write about may seem to be so fantastic that it must be pure fantasy--yet sometimes the truth is more fantastic than fiction. I have been up the creek and over the mountain. I have been to a goat roping and a county fair and I have even been to town and seen an elephant. I am currently living in Texas--you know,that little suburb of Oklahoma just south of the Red River. Texas is the original home of tall tales and long winded people so I feel right at home here.
THE CHOSEN ONEby OTIS RITCH

In my book “Resplendently Alien” which is a sequel to this book I wrote about the events leading up to a nuclear holocaust. The people that I wrote about managed to escape the Earth and find a new planet. The Earth was poisoned and dying and the people that were left were doomed to die of radiation, hunger, and violence.
In this book I wrote about some of the survivors that lived through the holocaust and eventually helped to clean up the environment. This story covers events dating back to about eighty-five thousand years ago and extends on into a hypothetical future. When I started to write this book it came about from a question in my mind. What would people do if they were suddenly thrown into a stone-age culture? Have you ever given any thought to what the situation would be like and what you would do? How many people today would know how to survive off the land, to find food, clothing, and shelter?
With the world political conditions being what they are today the potential for this scenario is all too real. It is past the time for the good people on Earth to stop and think about conditions and about what they may be able to do to change them. How long will the governments in our world be allowed to keep animosities stirred up creating hate, fear, and conditions for war? There was one incident, of which I am aware, that happened when J. F. K. was President that brought the world to the very brink of nuclear destruction. That incident was the Cuban missile crisis. The final countdown was into the final minute to push the button when Russia agreed to remove the missiles, thereby averting a worldwide nuclear holocaust. Just think--at one time in our recent history we were less than a minute from being thrown into a Stone Age where the survival of the human race would have been extremely tenuous. It should give us all something to think about when we see the results of greed, selfishness, hate, anger, splashed across the headlines in our newspapers every day. In this book you will find romance, intrigue, drama, adventure, humor, inspiration, and many more things that will stimulate your mind and make you want to keep reading and turning to the next page. It is a fast paced novel that you will want all your friends to read also.
