For more than 30 years, FalconGuides® have set the standard for outdoor recreation guidebooks. Written by top outdoors experts and enthusiasts, each guide invites readers to experience the endless adventure and beauty of the great outdoors.
Falcon Publishing was founded in Helena, Montana, in 1979 with one book—Hiking Montana by company co-founder and president Bill Schneider. From there Falcon went on to become North America's leading publisher of outdoor recreation books, its list growing to more than 700 titles before becoming part of the Globe Pequot family in the fall of 2000.
With titles covering the entire spectrum of outdoor activities, ranging from hiking and rock climbing guides to environmental preservation and wildlife identification books, our objective is to outfit your mind with the best possible information on where to go, how to get there, and what to see once you arrive.
A large part of Falcon's continued success as the world's leading publisher of outdoor recreation titles comes from our unwavering focus. Our books do more than lead readers from Point A to Point B; they engage the spirit of the sports lover and capture the very heart and soul of outdoor America, its fascinating history, and its incomparable beauty. 30 years and hundreds of books, tens of thousands of maps, and countless trips into the wilderness later, a FalconGuide continues to feel as much at home on a coffee table as it does dog-eared and beaten in a backpack.
