About Falcon Press Books
Falcon Press Books produces a series of manuals for various outdoor activities
called Falcon Guides. For over 30 years, these guides have been setting a new
standard for recreational outdoor content. Top experts and enthusiasts contribute
to each title to ensure that only the most accurate and trustworthy information
and tips are distributed. The folks at Falcon Press Books extend an open invitation
for readers to equip themselves with knowledge and then go forth to experience
the endless adventures that only Mother Nature can provide.
It all began in 1979 with one book. Bill Schneider of Helena, Montana got things
started by writing Hiking Montana. Now, Falcon is one of the leading publishers
of over 700 outdoor rec books, which makes them an absolute authority across the
entire country. This growing library of knowledge covers everything from rock
climbing and hiking to wildlife identification and environmental preservation.
No matter what content their books contain, it is always their goal to supply
your brain with the highest caliber information on the places you should go, how
you should get there, and what to do upon arrival.
Selections such as Falcon Guides How to Rock Climb: Toproping contains all the
information beginner climbers need to get started. Belay techniques, anchor set-ups
and other toproping essentials have congregated in this book to help newcomers
tackle the sport the right way. If you consider yourself more of an experienced
veteran on the walls and crags, perhaps something like the Falcon Advanced Rock
Climbing would be the choice for you. As your guide to scaling the treacherous
volcanoes of the Pacific Northwest, books like these reveal an expert approach
to some serious adventure.
Falcon knows their pedaling better than most, so they crank out info-packed editions
like the Falcon Guides Road Biking Oregon. Forty of the best rides in the state
are documented here with everything from some simple rides to multi-day challenges
for the more intense cyclists. All kinds of details, sights, attractions, events
and maps adorn books just like this one.
Much of Falcon’s success can be attributed to their unwavering focus. By
engaging the spirits of outdoor lovers, they are able to nourish the heart and
soul of an adventurous America. Countless voyages into the wilderness have familiarized
the Falcon contributors with the unparalleled beauty and rich history of this
country, and they want nothing more than to share their experiences with you.
Falcon Guides are perfectly at home just hanging out on a coffee table, or jammed
inside your pack with pages folded over as bookmarks of your favorite spots. So,
outfit your mind for success in the outdoors, and get out there to uncover some
adventure with Falcon Guides.
