Victim's Guide to Timber Theft
If you are a victim of timber theft, you have entered into an area of law enforcement that is different from anything you might encounter in other areas of criminal activity, beginning with law enforcement's frequent reluctance to deal with the crime, moving through the difficulty of proceeding with even a civil suit, and culminating with factors in play a jury trial.
You will almost certainly need guidance to help you through the process. One solution is Victim's Guide to Timber Theft, which provides comprehensive information about the magnitude of timber theft in this country, and its geographic breadth. It also talks about who is most likely to become a victim and the difficulties a victim will encounter when losing timber to theft, ranging from the methods timber thieves commonly use to hide their activity to the weakness of laws in this country.

The author became involved with timber theft when she and her husband lost more than 100 hardwoods to timber theft. Pursing that theft led them into both criminal and civil court cases. The theft was finally resolved after thirteen years of persistence by a judgment against the accused logger. During that thirteen years, she became an expert on timber theft, particularly from small landowners. That knowledge has been condensed into Victim’s Guide to Timber Theft.
Please note that all royalties from sales of both the ebook and paperback forms of Victim's Guide to Timber Theft will go to a non-profit the author is associated with which operates in low income areas of Eastern Kentucky. If you do not need the Guide for yourself, but would like to purchase it as a way of helping others, that would be most appreciated. Please note that, because of Amazon pricing rules, the royalty from the ebook ( price $2.95) is higher than the royalty from the printed book and would therefore be a larger gift.
