Meet the Author

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 Casa Grande 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 there. As an adult I have traveled over half 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 was born in 1942 and have been working since I was twelve years old and 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, to learn what motivates them as they live out the drama of life. 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

    A book that will awaken your spiritual side.

    Where Eagles Soar by Otis Ritch is a truly inspirational and spiritual book. Follow along with Johnny SkyHawk, the lead character, as he attempts to have a spiritual renewal with the Great Spirit while he is between jobs. What happens during the next few days is not what Johnny had in mind but because of his closeness to the Great Spirit he cannot refuse to do the right thing. Aside from the spiritual, it has suspense, intrigue and romance. If I told you anymore it may spoil your read. This is a book that will renew your spiritual being and put you in touch with your Great Spirit no matter your beliefs. It was a joy to read and I highly recommend this book to all who like a real good story and those that wish to become closer to their Spiritual Leader.

    Everyone should read this touching book

    This book is an excellent read with a great plot and characters, but also a terrific guide to living. It teaches us to appreciate what we have how we should use it and gives lessons we could all use to better our world. There is much we can learn about life here and how or why some people behave as they do. Although the actual story is filled with danger, fear, and warnings, it offers hope that evil will be defeated when you use thought and patience. As you turn the pages you learn about Indian lore that will enlighten your spirit and help you find peace within yourself. I heartily recommend this book full of insight, as if offers far more than just a story but expresses a true philosophy to live by. The book is extremely well written and thought out. I'm anxiously looking forward to the sequel.

    Mudlark native reviews outstanding book!

    The length and the substance of the story was very good for this day and time. I liked the characters, they were all very appropriate for their role in the book. I thought the topic of the book was very important for todays standards of morality. Very enjoyable to read. I like the way that the cougar lived instead of killing him, it said to me that their is always a choice. Man or animal their are always choices and I liked that.

    Where Eagles Soar-Highly recommend reading

    The book, Where Eagles Soar by Otis D. Ritch is light, easy reading, spiritually uplifting and a good story. I truly enjoyed the Native American culture and sprirituality described in this book. This culture has been so overwhelmingly over loooked. I find myself going back re reading some of the paragraphs at the beginning of each chapter and the wise grandfather's teachings. Absolutely wonderful book.

    Where Eagles Soar: 'a Spiritual Adventure'

    I can not say enough about this great book. It is the most spiritually inspiring novel I have ever read. The story line is so fast paced that I could not put the book down until I finished it. It is a great story and the spiritual insights the author inserted into the story, from the view point of a Choctaw Indian, will gladden the heart of anyone that reads the story and will inspire you to search for ever new and higher truths on the path of life while enlightening your soul.

    Where Eagles Soar, An Excellent Read

    Where Eagles Soar D Rae Iowa/USA (2/3/2005) I just finished reading ¿Where Eagles Soar¿ by Otis D. Ritch: This is an interesting spiritual adventure that takes place in Arizona. Johnny SkyHawk is a young American Indian, wise beyond his years thanks to the early teachings of his grandfather. For those who enjoy reading the words of the Great Spirit, will enjoy every page of this book as Johnny rescues a young Indian Maiden who becomes his beloved soul mate. Johnny SkyHawk learned as a young boy that ¿Truth is absolute, facts are partial, and comprehension is relative¿ when he follows the spiritual teachings of his grandfather. How does he know he is on the path of the Great Spirit? When the eagle soars overhead - he knows. 'Where Eagles Soar' is book you feel compelled to continue reading right on through to the beautiful ending once you pick it up and read the first few pages. Trust me, I know. ¿Listen not to the gaggle of geese that gather and gossip, rather should you lift your vision to the Heavens where none but the eagles fly, then you can find truth as it soars on high.¿ For a treat, visit his website at www.soaringeagle.50megs.com
