Coming Soon: A Book About The NoDAPL Protest

There are stories about the Dakota Access Pipeline Protest that need to be preserved, and I'm not just talking about the protesters, media darlings that they were.

Since the protest camps were cleared in February and March, I've been focusing on pulling together information and gather interviews. The previous eight months had been a blur of collecting articles, building a timeline, gathering thousands of screenshots and images off of social media, and trying to connect the dots to find the complete story.

I know there are others who are writing books about the protests. There certainly have been no shortage of films and documentaries cobbled together by protesters and their supporting media.

The book I am working on will give voice not only to ideas that weren't heard, but also to people whose ability to speak was either hobbled by the media, by criminal investigations, or by the sheer lack of time due to the 24/7 nature of their job of dealing with the protest.

I believe you will find the interviews I've collected quite interesting. They range from the farmers and ranchers who were greatly affected by the criminal activity of some protesters, to local elected officials, community advocates and organizers, and emergency services personnel. There were many things I had not known or realized, and I am glad they are going to finally see the light of day.

If you want to be alerted to when the book is available, please add your name to the email list below. I will only use it to notify you on book updates.

The purpose of this blog is to be a home for supplemental materials that the book references, as well as for content that did not fit in the book but deserves to see the light of day. It is both supporting, as well as overflow, for the book. It is also an attempt to move away from Facebook which is where so much toxic activity occurred.
