Product Details


“May be the most important book written about America’s curious and very dangerous survivalist rightwing movement. . . . Superbly written.” —Los Angeles Times

“Well-drawn, superbly reported . . . Kramer does a fine job of portraying a group of everyday lost souls looking for something larger to blame.” —The New York Times Book Review

“[An] expertly reported study of an unsuccessful but potentially dangerous band of domestic terrorists.” —USA Today

“Kramer has . . . a powerful capacity to bring alive people and feelings. . . . Lovely writing, and the reporting can’t be faulted.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Kramer’s insights into the movement shed unexpected light on an eerie underworld frequented by men whose view of reality has more in common with violent video games than genuine political principles.” —Austin American-Statesman

“In Lone Patriot, Kramer has achieved something nearly miraculous. Through meticulous reporting and incisive, often humorous writing, she creates a warts-and-all yet somehow sympathetic portrait.” —The Hartford Courant

“[Kramer’s] writing is graceful and fluid, finding humor as easily as heartbreak.” —The Oregonian

“By turns hilarious and harrowing, Lone Patriot offers one of the most richly textured and deeply affecting narratives of Jane Kramer’s remarkable career.”—Lawrence Wechsler

“Elegantly spun, thoroughly researched. . . . A lively, important, and splendid investigation of one man and one more paranoid vision.” —Providence Journal-Bulletin

“With the breezy style of a good novelist and the seasoned eye of an historian, Jane Kramer has written a remarkable book.” —Arizona Daily Star

“Brilliant. Kramer is a poet of discontent and delusion, and in Whatcom County she has found a great subject.”—Ward Just

“Kramer has gone bravely into the belly of a beast which is alive and well in America and which most of us prefer not to acknowledge. We avoid looking where she takes us in Lone Patriot at our peril.”—Bob Kerrey
