The Blood of Patriots

By Bill Fulton and Jeanne Devon

$9.99$17.47

Set against the vast, rugged, and sometimes lawless backdrop of Alaska, The Blood of Patriots is the story of an ideology gone bloody in the distorted belief that murder is patriotic. It is the true story of how Fulton wrestled his demons and became an undercover confidential informant for the FBI, helping to bring down a militia whose charismatic leader was plotting to kill federal judges and their families as well as law enforcement officers.

About the Book

“This reads like an Elmore Leonard yarn and wakes you up like a Jon Stewart bit. A fascinating and hilarious dive into the alt-right wing that loves alternative facts and is now trying to create alternative history. By any means necessary.”

– THOM HARTMANN, New York Times bestselling author and internationally syndicated radio host

The Blood of Patriots is one hell of a read. It’s a page turner that combines the thrilling elements of a Richard North Patterson novel with the hard hitting gonzo reportage of the late Hunter S. Thompson. Its publication couldn’t be more timely. I salute Bill Fulton. This book taught me what patriotism really means.”

– JASON LEOPOLD, Buzzfeed

When Bill Fulton arrived in Alaska, he was filled with optimism and big dreams. When he left, it was under FBI escort.

Bill was an Army Infantryman, and when his knees, back, and ankles gave out, he opened the Drop Zone, a military surplus supply store in Anchorage. He started hiring fellow vets: sharpshooting hippies, crew-cutted fundamentalists, PTSD sufferers—all seeking purpose and direction.

And Alaska gave it to them. The Last Frontier is vast—the perfect refuge for fugitives; the perfect place for vets seeking a mission. More than 400 fugitives would meet Bill and company on the wrong side of a gun, and he would learn many lessons along the way—like even tiptoeing through snow can get you shot and removing a gun from the butt crack of a 300-pound man is not as easy as it sounds.

Bill was just enjoying the ride until one day the FBI asked him to go undercover, and his road forked. Schaeffer Cox was a private militia commander building an arsenal and plotting to kill judges and law enforcement officers. Bill’s mission would be tohelp take Cox and his militia down, without a shot being fired.

The Blood of Patriots traverses a wide swath of rugged territory. Raucously funny and stark, it depicts men who were once brothers in arms serving their country—often on opposite sides—in a deadly test of the intricacies of liberty, the proper role of government, and the true meaning of patriotism. It offers a witty and unsettling look at political rhetoric gone awry, all set in the beautiful, terrifying landscape of our 49th state.
