Karl L. Stewart

Books, Fiction, Historical, Military

Award winning author, KARL STEWART, was raised in the hills of post-WWII West Virginia, and moved to Wisconsin in his teen years, attending a Catholic seminary. Upon leaving the seminary, he enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1966, serving as a communications sergeant in the elite Green Beret Special Forces until 1969. He enrolled in the University of Wisconsin, earning a double-major degree in political science and history. In 2005 Stewart retired from teaching high school Social Studies and English to devote himself to his two passions, family and writing.

His first novel, The Legend of See Bird: The Last Long Drive, (a Western) was followed by a sequel, Devil’s Backbone (dealing with the feud between the Hatfields and McCoys), which received an Honorable Mention at the Southern California Book Festival. Both books are loosely based on the life of Stewart’s great-grandfather, See Bird Carpenter, a Choctaw Indian. He and his wife live in rural Wisconsin on a pine-lined ridge with a stunning view to the south, echoing his West Virginia childhood playgrounds.
