A New Direction in Quality Publishing

When I was a young journalism student, I was given a gift—although, at the time, I did not fully realize how valuable.

“Read only the best,” a wise, eccentric man advised me. “You won’t have time for the rest.”

Fifteen years ago I launched Wild River Press with a focused aim: to create the finest fishing and hunting in print. With enthusiastic support from sportsmen and sportswomen 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 of publishing excellence along the way. Thank you to all—our wonderful authors and loyal readers—for making our collective success possible.

New to our lineup of fine sporting titles are:

Pheasant Dogs by Keith R. Crowley of Wisconsin
Fifty Women Who Fish by Steve Kantner of Florida
Why Women Hunt by K. J. Houtman of Minnesota

All three titles are exceptionally well written and beautifully illustrated with original color photography. Their collective quality adds to the depth of our library. And all three have been nominated for top awards.

I am pleased to report that we have many exciting projects underway, including the spring 2020 release of Grouse & Woodcock: The Birds of My Life by Timothy C. Flanigan, retired career conservation officer with the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Tim is a lifelong upland bird-hunting enthusiast and first-class nature photographer. His closeup images of these birds are breathtaking.

To aid in the ongoing commitment of Wild River Press to wildlife conservation, we are proud that an author- signed copy of Grouse & Woodcock is a featured item at all Ruffed Grouse Society fundraising events this year, as is a signed copy of Pheasant Dogs at all Pheasants Forever events.

Finally, for those of you with a collection of stories of your experiences in the field or on the water—or with the dream of a published memoir you’ve imagined giving your friends and family as a gift—ask about our new Wild River Custom Publishing service. We can help you plan, edit and bring to reality the book you’ve been thinking about.

Yours for Reading Only the Best,

Thomas R. Pero
