The Mission: "To inspire and educate the outdoor community through quality publications." The Mountaineers Books publishes more than 600 outdoor guidebooks, how-to, adventure narratives, histories, conservation books, and more. Whether you're a climber, hiker, skier, mountain biker, or paddler, they have the guides for you. As a branch of the Seattle-based Mountaineers outdoor activity and conservation club, they are a non-profit organization. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of every book goes to support the conservation programs of the club and the publication of each title aims to fulfill the club's conservation mission.
