Wood Thrush Books is a small press specializing in uncommon nature writing -- introspective work that explores the largely uncharted territory beyond Emerson and Thoreau. Established in 1985, this press was originally an outlet for poets living in northern Vermont and other parts of the Northeast. Now it focuses on essays and non-fiction narratives about humanity and the wild. While this press showcases the writings of Walt McLaughlin, it also publishes limited-run chapbooks and paperbacks by Walt Franklin, Benjamin Green and other contemporary nature writers. An anthology of cutting-edge, nature-related poetry and prose appears periodically under the WTB imprint, as well.
