Blind Spots e-book

I just discovered that my 2003 memoir, Blind Spots, is now available as an e-book. Because the original publisher pulled it from their catalogue after receiving a threatening phone call from someone named in the book, I did not expect the first edition to resurface, but it apparently has.

(In response to its removal, immediately following the first press review in 2003, I opted in 2005 to self-publish a second edition elsewhere.)

Admittedly, the memoir would benefit from an index, which it does not include, but it nevertheless describes how the building and real estate industries in Washington state covertly conspired to undermine environmental and treaty protections by funding property rights field agents who organized anti-environmental, anti-Indian vigilantes to intimidate the industries' political opponents. While not, perhaps, an elegant account of the seven-year battle, it is at least accurate and based on eyewitness testimony and evidence collected from public records.
