AMC Books

Appalachian Mountain Club | 2016–2019

As AMC’s former editorial director and obsessive top editor, I’m so proud of these books—true testaments to the authors and our AMC team. Highlights: people of color with ties to AMC, not stock photos, proudly represented; lightyears-level-upgrades to reader-friendliness and usability in legacy titles; new voices; expert skill knowledge; dedicated reporting; granular editing; and a National Outdoor Book Award. Below is a smattering of the 20-some-odd books I saw from acquisition to pure outdoor joy, all available in AMC’s online store.
