The Canadian publishing company, founded in 1979, kept hikers, climbers and skiers safe and entertained for years with their guidebooks. In the 21st century, Rocky Mountain Books has repositioned itself and now successfully publishes and promotes a dynamic, growing list of provocative, engaging and award-winning books on mountain history, adventure travel, outdoor lifestyle, environmental consciousness, Indigenous culture, and contemporary photography—as well as a growing selection of bestselling books for children.
Included in the giveaway are four of their top wildlife titles – Takaya: Lone Wolf (Cheryl Alexander, 2020), What Bears Teach Us (Sarah Elmeligi with photos by John E. Marriott, 2020), Talking With Bears: Conversations with Charlie Russell (G.A. Bradshaw 2020) and Bears Without Fear (Kevin Van Tighem, 2013).
