A Review and Preview

2010 brought us a year of great books, just to name a few:

Trickster Buffalo Bill The Mitsitam Cafe Cookbook The Libraries, Leadership, & Legacy of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson

We took our readers to the front lines of Endangered Species Act battles; published our first graphic novel, Trickster; told the story of Buffalo Bill, America’s first celebrity;  got cooking with recipes from the Mitsitam Cafe; studied the bookshelves of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson; and celebrated the history and rebirth of the great Rust Belt City. As 2010 comes to an end, there’s much to look forward to in the new year, including a new crop of titles! Here’s a sneak peek at what’s coming in 2011:

The Guide to Colorado Reptiles and Amphibians by Mary Taylor Young


We’ve all encountered reptiles and amphibians, maybe a turtle lumbering across a country road, a frog hoping with a splash into a pond, a snake slithering through the grass at our feet. . . .There’s something about these creeping, crawling, darting creatures that fascinates us and brings an element of surprise, delight, and whimsy to outings in the Colorado outdoors. Available in May!

Trickster… a sneak peek

Fulcrum publishes graphic novels??!!

That’s right! For the first time in our quarter-century publishing history, we are breaking out into a new genre with this amazing collection of  Native American trickster tales. It is the first collection of its kind. Editor Matt Dembicki, of DC Conspiracy fame, brought together more than 20 Native American storytellers from the Cherokee Nation to the Chickaloon Village to visually tell their individual stories with carefully selected illustrators.

Trickster: Native American Tales, A Graphic Collection is funny, dramatic, and educational. It is a powerful collection that will, like many graphic novels of late, appeal to both children and adults. Look for it on shelves in the next few months, and check back here often for more Trickster sneak peeks!

We are very excited about this one!
