My book Empire of Timber is now in paperback and thus at a price that is reasonably affordable, if still a little high for a paperback. If you have an itch that needs to be scratched around reading the first book to examine how workers used their unions to promote their own environmental agenda in a single industry over the twentieth century, you should buy it!

  • I want to read both your books that I’m aware of, but I’m already in the process of having to get rid of physical books due to a pending move, so I don’t expect to pick up more anytime soon. I will probably pick up the ebook editions sooner rather than later, though.

    I still say you should collect the labour history posts for a book as well. (I believe I remember you saying you’re already working on this, though, so mentioning that may be completely useless.)

    In the spirit of VS’s post, congrats.

    ETA: ordered. But from B&N, not AZ.

    • I’m old enough to remember when b&n was the bad guy in book retailing.
      It’s like season 1 of Deadwood, when you thought Al Swearengen was as evil as a villain could be, never forseeing the Hearst to come.

        I’m old enough to remember when B&N was one very large, very well-stocked store in Manhattan.

        ETA: as I’ve said here before, everything I know about running a small business I learned from Al Swearengen and Stringer Bell.

    On my list. I may have some B&N gift card money to spare on it.

    Yo dawg I heard you like dead trees, so I put a story about the death of the tree-killing industry in a dead-tree format.

    (Congrats Erik!)

  • Bruce B.

    Looking forward to it next month!

  • Woodrowfan

    well done cover too.

    So, was the sign correct? Were hunting and fishing illegal in the habitat??

  • Joe_JP

    Sounds good though $30 is still a bit much. See it is available via e-book at the library, but don’t like those things much. Out of sight is in regular book format for borrowing. That’s cool.

    (Could read the other book in the library, I see … that’s something, I guess.)

  • Ronan

    I really like the cover for some reason. Aesthetically it’s very catching.

    The ebook version costing little less than the PB is more egregious, IMO.

It is main inner container footer text
