A side project that I've been involved with for the past two years has been writing a book about my investigation into the untimely passing of environmentalist and filmmaker Rob Stewart.  It was a great opportunity to take a great deal of material that hadn't made the documentary and weave it into the book's narration.  Due to be published by Rocky Mountain Books in early October 2020.
