Folks,Sandy Hook

After 47 (and more) years of writing, publishing, and distributing books about nature, national parks, the outdoors, and Americana, time has come to downsize so we’ll be trim and fit at 50. At last count, we have sold 334,800 copies of the books we publish--with reprints of many, uncounted numbers of titles we distributed for other publishers, and some 900,000 copies of books we wrote for others, plus some magazine articles.

We look for your help to downsize. And to get it, we’ll help you help us—with clearance offers giving prices lower than ever. And for books that are already bargains, almost all having had no price increase for over a decade. Depending on quantities ordered, discounts range up to 70% postpaid, or even as little as just a few dimes net for ordering all of an inventory. (We will keep some of our titles alive with future reprintings, but none of those in this sale, so if you do take all of an inventory you will have an exclusive on their sales.

The offers are good for all—stores, wholesalers, schools, libraries, individuals, non-profits. Even clubs and associations could consider these deals to entice members or provide incentives for raising funds. Any of these can also be resold at whatever price you choose, not what we list as the retail price.

Look at the specials below for titles we publish. Many of the prior printing of these sold out; some for multiple reprints. You can see descriptions and illustrations of these by clicking the links. When you find a title you can use, take the discounts shown for the quantity you want--more discount the more you help us size downwards--and order at least 10 books (you can mix titles) and then note “DOWNSIZE” on your order or mark your selections on the back of this page and return by mail or email or call us. If you need a better deal than we show, tell us what you need to give us a hand as we move toward our leaner future.

In addition to our own titles, VistaBooks has in the past catalogued well over ten thousand titles from other publishers within our subject areas and we still stock on many. You can see these on our VistaBooks Outlet website ( where all are at least 50% off and some a lot more. A number of these are now out of print and not readily available elsewhere.

Thanks for looking to see whether you can help us trim up. The Wild Sheep by John Muir
