Eric "Hoss" Cartwright was born to Inger and Benjamin Cartwright in 1836, during their trip west. Shortly after his birth, Inger was killed during an Indian attack. Raised by Ben, with the help of his older brother Adam, Hoss was the most openly sensitive of the the Cartwright sons.
Hoss grew to be a big man with a huge heart. He had a deep appreciation for the simpler things in life, loving nature, animals, people and food. His tender heart is what won the hearts of everyone he came in contact with. Still, Hoss could be an intimidating force when someone he loved, or even a stranger, was threatened.
Hoss disliked cheese, but liked vinegar on his flapjacks.
Shy with women, he won the hearts of many, but never married.
Even today, "Hoss" lives on in the hearts of all Bonanza fans. Hoss Cartwright Bio by swgirl
