Why a print edition of this title? The electronic edition has been available for several years, while the print edition has been out of print since 2009. I am providing a new, revised print edition because I always sell physical copies of my titles at art shows. My first show is on 2 April, and I expect a good response.

Here's the overview of Blood and Bond:
It's the 21st Century, but one rancher in Lamp Creek Valley is being harassed by the dark specter of a long-dead relative, and ancient beliefs that seem to be threatening the environment. He is compelled to face his past in order to quell the mystical chaos that is affecting three families--including his own.
Eddie CloudRunner's discomfort increases when local businessman, Pete Waldham, insists Eddie must save the Waldham family from an Indian curse that he believes was brought on by illegal hunting in the legendary canyon.
Then Beth Hardemann, Sean Waldham and Martin Bradley (three relatives of the purported defilers) arrive and spark disasters and revelations. Eddie finally admits his long-denied beliefs. While he delves into the mysticism, the capricious Rocky Mountain environment confounds the situation with harsh and unseasonable weather.Blood and Bond contains family issues, a good dose of intrigue and some romance, too.
