Welcome to History Press West!

History Press West is managed by commissioning editor Aubrie Koenig. This blog highlights History Press books in the western United States and includes author interviews, special features, book reviews, and news about forthcoming titles.

The History Press is a traditional book publishing company that focuses exclusively on local and regional heritage. In 2011 and 2012, the press released its debut titles in nine western states including California, Montana, Oregon, New Mexico, and Alaska. This year, in addition to building our list in those states, we look forward to adding Utah, Hawaii, and Wyoming to the mix. For a full list of History Press series descriptions and new titles visit www.historypress.net.
