LOS ANGELES, August 9, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dan Blackburn, a veteran broadcast and print journalist and photographer, has completed his new book "Of Presidents & Predators": a gripping account that touches on the highlights of covering the White House and Capitol Hill as a young journalist through the tragically brief presidential campaign of his friend Robert Kennedy and some of the presidential campaigns of other White House hopefuls in the days before chaos became the top word of the political scene.

Blackburn shares, "Interspersed with reporting on environmental issues and the space program, this book includes insights into many political figures and an inside look into the entertainment world including (my) long friendship with singer Linda Ronstadt, songwriter John David Souther and others on the California scene."

According to Jules Witcover, a nationally syndicated columnist, Dan Blackburn's personal and insightful account is told in the framework of his growing up in rural La Porte, Indiana, as the precocious but never pretentious son of a hard-working family who was smitten by the wonder of radio, music and eventually journalism, where he eventually found his niche.

Witcover also notes that Blackburn's open and guileless manner brought him the friendship of the average joe and the powerful as well. In what perhaps was the centerpiece of his working career, on the campaign trail he became a favorite of Robert Kennedy. His accounting of the highlights from RFK's Senate career to the depths of his assassination in Los Angeles are among the memoir's most arresting.

Readers who wish to experience this potent work can purchase "Of Presidents & Predators" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
