A book in hand is empowering in ways the internet can’t be. Use the web to check the weather forecast and find that perfect recipe, but to really delve into a subject and glean wisdom from writers who know their stuff (and know how to write), read a good book. We have several to choose from.

What we publish

PixyJack Press publishes books about nature…the wild and not-so-wild:

  • renewable energy and sustainable living
  • log home planning and building
  • wildfire readiness and disaster recovery
  • fire safety at home
  • bear smart advice
  • simple horse nutrition
  • Costa Rica nature and history

Who we sell to

We sell to individuals and bookstores, but also to organizations and groups who want to make a difference or who want to raise money by selling books. We make it easy to buy directly from us; our online store gives you access to quantity discounts so you can shop any time, day or night.

How we ended up here

In 1999 we relocated our new publishing company several miles off the beaten path to a place of breathtaking views and endless wildlife. But no utilities. And so we began the odyssey of learning how to handcraft a home from a pile of logs and harness the sun and wind to provide the energy. We then transformed our hard-won knowledge into popular graphic-packed books. Soon afterwards we added more authors to our lineup and expanded our range of topics. It has been a wonderful journey.
