Here we are, fifty years after Woodstock.  We’ve just published THE WOODSTOCK STORY eBOOK, a Woodstock 50th Collectible.   “The Woodstock Story eBook” brings the hard-cover coffee table book to life with hundreds of active links to the celebrities, their lives, stories and music.  Now you can be virtually there, to share this piece of American history and to preserve it with your own collectible copy.  It examines the spirit of Woodstock today, with first-hand observations by me as the Still Photographer on the Film “Woodstock.” The film, by Warner Bros. won an Academy Award® for “Best Documentary Film” in 1970 and later in 1996, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”   This collectible eBook, written by my wife, Linanne G. Sackett, is the most complete compendium for all those who attended Woodstock, for all who wish they could have been there, and for all who want to better understand the impact of the Woodstock Generation in today’s parallel world.   It’s being sold on Amazon.com, Apple iBooks and being distributed across the country and the world by PGW of Ingram.

Our coffee table hard cover version, the basis for the expanded ebook version, received rave reviews from many individuals and reviewers. “The authors have created an intimate time capsule… an incredible all-access pass to the music and art fair that came to be known solely as Woodstock…Because Woodstock is told through a collage of photos, song lyrics and rhyming text, it also has a homespun scrapbook vibe, which feels right for recounting a personal communal experience… the peace and love essence of Woodstock rings out loud and clear and like Sly and the Family Stone ‘taking them higher’ here the authors likewise reach for the sky.” -Kirkus Reviews

OUR FIRST BABY ARRIVED JUST FOUR MONTHS AFTER OUR MARRIAGE

NOW, our newest baby is here!  The Woodstock Story Book was the product of Linanne’s fertile imagination and belief in me.  From the very first time she learned that I was the still photographer on the Academy Award winning film, Woodstock, and from the first time she laid eyes on my slides, she insisted that I had enough images, and a wide enough range of images, to do a book of my own.  In the beginning, I demurred, not believing enough in myself, but her constant encouragement, her sending my photos to be converted into high quality Tiffs, and her creation of our web site, Woodstock Witness.com, made me a believer.  Now, for the 50th she has updated the book with an expanded eBook version – THE WOODSTOCK STORY eBOOK.


And as of 1 February, our newest baby THE WOODSTOCK STORY eBOOK is also available for the world to see on Amazon.  Publishers Group West of Ingram is distributing both books across the nation and the world. So check it out, and order a copy or two for yourself, or as as gifts for  friends. We’ll even autograph the hard cover from our website – www.WoodstockWitness.com.  
Join in on OUR blog about those heady days of summer, amidst the run-up to the 50th anniversary of this great event.
