Bright Mountain Books

A Southern Appalachian Publisher

Bright Mountain Books is devoted to publishing high-quality books pertaining to the Southern Appalachians, particularly the Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Our primary emphasis is regional nonfiction, but we also publish some historical fiction written by local authors.

Historically based fiction, and reprints of classic works such as Margaret Morley's The Carolina Mountains, are published under our Historical Images imprint. Our newer imprint, Ridgetop Books, features local authors who share in the production process.

We invite you to read about our AUTHORS and browse our TITLES, which range from local storytelling such as in Growing Gills: A Fly Fisherman's Journey and Potato Branch to regional cookbooks such as the Asheville Junior League's Mountain Elegance and the perennially popular Old Favorite Honey Recipes.

Joe Dabney shares stories of moonshiners and their recipes in our best-selling Mountain Spirits and More Mountain Spirits while Michael Renegar spins tales of spirits of another kind (ghosts!) in Roadside Revenants and Tar Heel Terrors. Discover the architecture and history of Asheville, North Carolina, in Cabins and Castles or Lou Harshaw's Asheville: Mountain Majesty.
