Carew Papritz, also known as The Cowboy Philosopher, is the author of the multi-award winning book The Legacy Letters. Though fictional, The Legacy Letters has won acclaim as a life lessons book for all generations, gaining the distinction of being the only book in publishing history to win awards in both fiction and non-fiction categories. A Renaissance Man in an age that lauds the specialist, The Huffington Post says Papritz "intrigues and enlightens, charms and catalyzes change for every reader."

As part of his many innovative and adventurous first-ever book signings, Carew truly lives his book’s central message to “live life to the fullest” while signing books on top of a volcano, on horseback, in post-Castro Cuba, while on Amtrak and even on an glacier!
These events and other “CarewTube” videos, such as the “I Love to Read” series and his annual literacy-driven charity event, “The Great Book Balloon Launch,” inspire kids and adults to rediscover the joy of reading while supporting such charities as The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Reading is Fundamental, The Military Mama’s Network, and The Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Papritz strongly believes in being an advocate for literacy and teaching future generations about the importance of legacy. Learn more about Carew at
