War protester Cindy Sheehan's book being released Wednesday
FORT WORTH, Texas Activist Cindy Sheehan's journal entries are being published in a new book called "Not One More Mother's Child" that's set to be released Wednesday.
Sheehan camped out near President Bush's Crawford ranch in August, refusing to leave until the president met with her or ended his ranch vacation.
Her 24-year-old soldier son Casey died in Iraq last year.
In one chapter, she chronicles the daily events of the 26-day protest, such as being bombarded with media interviews, the campsite wedding of two peace activists and visits from Martin Sheen, Joan Baez and the Reverend Al Sharpton.
Sheehan says the book is based on writings she made each night, after she slipped away to her tent or RV for a few quiet moments on her laptop.
The 15 dollar paperback also contains some of her speeches to peace groups earlier this year, letters to politicians and new writings since leaving Crawford.
The publisher says Sheehan was paid a "modest" advance for the book.
The White House did not return calls seeking comment about the book.
