Lone Pine Publishing

Lone Pine Publishing is an Alberta-based book publisher, best known across Canada and parts of the United States for its gardening books, bird guides and nature guides. Lone Pine Publishing was founded in 1980 when Canadian broadcaster and journalist Grant Kennedy set up the company in Edmonton and published the firm’s first book, entitled The Albertans. Since then, Lone Pine Publishing has published over 600 titles. The company also distributes books for a number of smaller Canadian and U.S. publishers through an extensive network of independent booksellers and other retailers, marketing in all Canadian provinces except Quebec and in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, California and the Great Lakes states. Lone Pine Publishing maintains a head office and central warehouse operations in Edmonton, Canada, and a sales office and warehouse in Auburn, Washington, USA. The company also maintains a warehouse in Lansing, Michigan.
