Leading readers to the lessons and pleasures of the great outdoors.

Mountaineers Books was established in 1960 by volunteers of The Mountaineers, first to make our climbing knowledge available in the form of Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills (the world's best-selling climbing instructional text). That book spawned our publishing division, Mountaineers Books, which has grown along with our Pacific Northwest programs to get people into wilderness areas and build a community of advocates for wild places. 

Today, Mountaineers Books is the nation's leading independent publisher of outdoor recreation, lifestyle, and conservation books. We have more than 700 titles in print, and distribute the books of other like-minded outdoor nonprofits, including the American Alpine Club, Colorado Mountain Club, and the Adventure Cycling Association. In addition to the recreation books and adventure stories published by Mountaineers Books, we have two imprints, Skipstone and Braided River.

Skipstone titles promote a deeper connection to our natural world through sustainable practices and backyard activism.

Braided River uses photography and stories to show and explain the value of specific wild places in North America.
