Domestic Terrorist or American Patriot?

Cliven Bundy

The Federal Government treats him as a domestic terrorist

The media characterizes him as a gun-toting militia-wacko.

The Bundy name is celebrated by ranchers and farmers throughout the West. But that same name has become an anathema to those ensconced in Washington; those who work to arrest the oncoming wildfire of honest examination of the long-held Federal assertion of land ownership and management irrespective of the citizens Constitutional rights and guarantees across the West's vast agricultural sector, one that feeds the world.

With this book, Cliven Bundy tells his story for the first time to author Michael Stickler while behind the razor wire fences of Federal lockup. Stickler spent over 60 days documenting Bundy's side of the conflict that led over 200 Federal agents - in full tactical gear armed for civil war - to seize, sell, and destroy his cattle - acting well beyond their judicial warrant. The standoff made international news, creating the rally cry "No, Hell NO!" that brought thousands of Americans from across the country to the Bundy Ranch in April 2014.

Additionally, Cliven gives his personal account of 'life lost', and the continued costs that the "Bundy 19" endure as they continue to sacrifice their livelihoods and freedom.

The author describes the intense hardships the Bundy 19 (18 others charged with federal crimes along with Cliven) experience from the oppression and danger that continues in the government's private contract prison in which they are held. From here, Cliven shares his personal inner fears and hopes for the future.

It's a burden that weighs heavily upon Cliven's heart.
