About Bill Ryan

The author: William (Bill) Ryan lives in historic Flagler County Florida on the Atlantic Coast of Florida about 20 miles south of St. Augustine, America’s oldest city. He is a director of the Flagler County Historic Society and spent some 20 years tracing the almost vanished “Old Kings Road” built by the Colonial British as one of the prime entryways into Florida. This old highway existed right up to 1914. He had an lengthy career in the high technology imaging and photographic industry. He resolved to film and record as much as possible of this old British highway which was constructed prior to the American Revolution. Many stories came about concerning events in the early history of Florida. One such is “I am Grey Eyes” concerning an unique Seminole Indian who was reported to have set much of the trail of the British Highway by driving a herd of 500 cattle to the new settlement of New Smyrna to the south. A new book is in completion “Bulow Gold” concerning an immense treasure collected during the Seminole War of 1835 and possibly still buried in Florida. Bill Ryan combines intensive historical research with a linked together story to bring history alive. His account of Osceola, the great Seminole leader, was called to be “very accurate” by Seminole historians. “The early history of Florida is very exciting and extends far beyond what is known about St. Augustine. I hope my books will make the many stories of early Florida combine with the real characters and events as I found them.” Bill Ryan
