Welcome to Wild River Press
Thank You For 10 Great Years!
When I was a young journalism student, I was given a gift, although at the time I did not fully realize how valuable the advice was. “Read only the best,” a wise if somewhat eccentric man advised me. “You won’t have time for the rest. ”Ten years ago I launched Wild River Press with a focused aim: to create the finest fishing and hunting in print. With enthusiastic support from outdoor sporting men and women who know and still treasure fine sporting literature, we have succeeded. We have brought you adventure and knowledge from the experts, while winning a string of impressive international awards for publishing excellence along the way. Thank you to all—our wonderful authors and loyal readers—for making our collective success possible.
I am happy to report that we have a number of exciting projects underway, including a blockbuster book about wild turkey hunting planned for release early next year, to celebrate the opening of the spring 2017 season.
Later this year we will publish the landmark A Passion for Permit by Jonathan Olch. It is the logical follow-up to Andy Mill’s much-acclaimed A Passion for Tarpon. I have been working closely with Jon for several years to bring his dream to print. You will not be disappointed. All keen fishers of the tropical flats will absolutely love this complete, in-depth work on one of our most elusive saltwater game fish.
My own Gettysburg 1863—Seething Hell is in print and shipping now. More than a decade in the making, this immense project has demanded from me everything I have learned in my 40 years in the craft of storytelling and publishing—and more. Trust me, fellow Civil War buffs, when I say it’s like nothing you’ve ever read or seen before on the subject. I set an exceedingly steep mountain for myself to climb, and over three straight years dedicated all my effort to get to the top. At times I wondered if I’d get there. Please join me in celebrating by ordering a copy of Gettysburg 1863 for your library today. Signed and numbered limited editions are still available.
Finally, Wild River Press is proud to support a range of conservation, youth education, and other non-profit sporting organizations. To date, with the loyal support of our readers and collectors, we have proudly contributed in excess of $50,000 for everything from satellite tarpon-tagging to grouse-habitat improvement work.
From time to time we offer select Wild River Press titles at very attractive discounts to help raise money for worthy causes that help the resource. If you are part of such an organization, pick up the phone or send me a quick email to discuss including our fine books in your upcoming raffle and auction. We are more than pleased to help your good efforts.
Yours for Reading Only the Best,
Thomas R. Pero
