Wilderness Press

This Berkeley, Calif.-based publisher of outdoor hiking books and maps accepts proposals with a cover letter that explains who you are, what you would like to write about, and your background and qualifications for writing a book on the subject. Include an outline (table of contents) and synopsis of one or two sample characters, if they exist. Material should demonstrate your command of the subject and your writing ability. If you are proposing a guidebook, include at least one trip or place description. Wilderness Press does not publish hunting or fishing books.
