We make it easy for teachers, schools, organizations and other non-profits to buy direct from us: our store lists quantity discounts of books AND we offer a variety of educational materials (door hangers, pocket guides, study guides) to help educate and motivate your students and members.

How we ended up here

In 1999, after publishing a best-selling book on horse nutrition, 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 handcrafting a home from a pile of trees and learned how to harness the sun and wind to provide the energy. We then transformed our hard-won knowledge into a couple of popular graphic-packed renewable energy books. Soon afterwards we added more authors to our lineup and expanded our range of topics. 

What we publish

PixyJack Press publishes non-fiction titles about nature...the wild and not-so-wild: 

renewable energy and sustainable living

log home planning and building

wildfire readiness and recovery

fire safety at home

bear smart advice

simple horse nutrition

Costa Rica nature and history

All in all, PixyJack Press is rather ‘green’ when it comes to our list of environmental titles and our reliance on renewable energy. Even Publishers Weekly took note of this unique combination in the article, "Green and Off the Grid," by Bridget Kinsella (2009). 

But since the real-life adoption of renewable energy transcends petty politics, readers never know that our authors come from both ends of the political spectrum; guilt trips are left at the door.
