Johnson Books

Johnson Books was established in 1978 and for 40 years has been exploring and celebrating both the facts and fantasies of the West. As one of Colorado’s premier book publishers Johnson Books has grown with the West, and so has been able to keep a pulse on its important issues–both historical and contemporary.

Our books are regional in nature, focused on the mountain and desert West, and include environmental subjects, history, geology, archaeology, and general nonfiction.
