Rachel Carson warned of a Silent Spring, a sterile quiet without bird-song, a pending loss caused by pesticide use. Eagles, condors, ospreys all came back as a result of major changes ignited by storytelling. Today, different human-caused problems threaten land and sea environments everywhere. Problems like global warming, ocean acidification, and public lands mismanagement, which often persist because people are unaware or uninspired. There is nothing like story to create awareness and understanding, empathy, and passion. And there is nothing like a book to tell a good story. Books are personal. Books are interactive. Books are demanding. And books are still important catalysts of change. The land, the environment, and our culture need transformative books now more than ever.
Today, no other nonprofit literary press has a dedicated focus on conservation via both fiction and literary nonfiction. It takes a village to do conservation, and Torrey House Press books, workshops, conferences, and events invigorate the literary ecosystem necessary to create, support, and sustain the village.

“In the greater publishing world in which both Western lands and Western literature seem to have been forgotten, Torrey House Press is not just an advocate, but a guardian. Working with Torrey House Press is as much an act of conscience for me as fighting to stop a uranium mine near the Grand Canyon or working to stop a developer from destroying an ephemeral Arizona wetland.”
—Mary Sojourner, author of 29, Bonelight, and She Bets Her Life
“Torrey House Press is one of the hardest working and visionary presses in the country. To have accomplished so much with so little is a testament to both the quality of their authors and readers, as well as to their commitment to literature and to promoting our care of the land.”
—Maximilian Werner, author of Crooked Creek
“An investment in Torrey House Press is an investment in the West’s incomparable wild lands and the people who care deeply about them. Through its carefully curated selection of nonfiction and fiction, Torrey House provides advocates and would-be advocates a window into the soul of the West—its threatened public lands and imperiled open spaces, and the people working tirelessly for the protection and preservation of those lands. Best of all, the Torrey House brand of high quality literature is marked by assured, well edited prose that makes reading every page a pure pleasure.”
—Scott Graham, author of the National Park Mystery Series
“In a day when New York seems mired in literary confusion, environmental policy is regularly strong-armed by commercial interests, and the wilderness has a growing voice through human authorship, Torrey House Press is something welcome and needed. Genuine and spare, clear-headed, relevant, and discerning, it has proven to be a potent force in American publishing.”
—Braden Hepner, author of Pale Harvest
“The Torrey House mission is profoundly significant, to both the conservation of our great lands and to American letters. Without quality independent presses like this one, we are lost.”
—Jay Treiber, author of Spirit Walk
“Warning: Torrey House Press books are dangerous. They are wildlands. They are dark skies. They’ll get you lost—then help you find your way. ”
—Erica Olsen, author of Recapture & Other Stories
“Every so often we encounter people who are committed to the big picture, people who devote their energies to the survival of wildlife and wilderness. Mark Bailey and Kirsten Allen founded Torrey House Press to present books by gifted authors who address current environmental issues and portray characters borne of a place. Torrey House Press raises the issues as well as our consciousness. It enriches our appreciation of a place still wild and in need of our protection.”
—Bev Magennis, author of Alibi Creek
