Goodreads Author

Member Since
April 2013


As a bestselling author of the award-winning inspirational book, “The Legacy Letters,” Carew Papritz thrives on the incurable combination of an undying curiosity and an adventurer’s heart. He truly lives his book’s central message to “live life to the fullest.”

Yosemite, Romper Room, & A First Novel—Born in Yosemite National Park, Carew lived the first year of life in a tent cabin; at 5 he appeared on the TV show, Romper Room; at 12 he won his first national writing award; and at 16 he wrote his first novel (which of course, for every “great novelist,” did not get published).

Skiing, War, & Bartending— Carew’s curiosity has lead him to be a ski patrolman, tour bus driver, river raft guide, and a bartender. Living in Norway, he trained and ra

“You become a man when you give your family the best of who you are.”
Carew Papritz, The Legacy Letters: his Wife, his Children, his Final Gift

“I wish I could wrap up the glitter star-green of this moment and hand it to you like an angel gift. Give you the heat lightning flying in jagged silence over the distant mountains. And the smell of September prairie grass and the even fainter scent of October pine now descending . . .”
Carew Papritz, The Legacy Letters: his Wife, his Children, his Final Gift

“Old is old at any age. Old is when you quit asking questions about this, that, and everything. Old is when you forget how to love-or worse, don't care. Old is when you don't want to dance anymore. Old is when you don't want to learn anything new except how to be old. Old is when people tell you that you are old-and you believe them.”
Carew Papritz, The Legacy Letters: his Wife, his Children, his Final Gift

“You become a man when you give your family the best of who you are.”
Carew Papritz, The Legacy Letters: his Wife, his Children, his Final Gift

“I travel because it makes me realize how much I haven't seen, how much I'm not going to see, and how much I still need to see."
- The Legacy Letters, by Carew Papritz”
Carew Papritz, The Legacy Letters: his Wife, his Children, his Final Gift

“Time. Either you are for it or against it. So be here now. Not later. Do what you want to do, and with the people you love. Learn to appreciate time and make doing so a habit. And if you want to do nothing, then enjoy doing it well. Why do anything by half? Why live a life diluted? What's the use?”
Carew Papritz

“It's not who you are, but what you're made of. It's not where you come from, but where you're going to.”
Carew Papritz, The Legacy Letters: his Wife, his Children, his Final Gift

“Kids are kids and not little adults. They're watching and listening to you all the time. They're figuring out the game plan but still don't know all the rules. Talk straight to them and they'll respect you for it.”
Carew Papritz, The Legacy Letters: his Wife, his Children, his Final Gift
