Our Story

I  began writing local history booklets and newsletters in the 1990's. Fascinated by the early history of the American West, I  published my first book,  Lewis and Clark Road Trips in 2oo6. Library Journal called it "outstanding" and recommended it  "for all travel collections". It featured over 800 history destinations, coast to coast. A second edition is planned for 2019, which will launch a new series called American History Road Trips.

For the last ten years I have focused on the mysterious death of Meriwether Lewis. In 2009 I published The Death of Meriwether Lewis, co-authored with James E. Starrs. A second "New Evidence" edition was published in 2012. I appeared on C-Span Book TV and the History Channel during this time. My biography, Meriwether Lewis: The Assassination of an American Hero and the Silver Mines of Mexico was published in 2015.  In May, 2018, Fifty Documents Related to the Assassination of Meriwether Lewis will be published. I plan to podcast and blog on this topic throughout 2018.

Despite researching and writing my own books, I have published  other authors. They all wanted what RJP provides, and I am proud to have helped them accomplish their goals. If you are interested in being published by River Junction Press, please feel free to contact me.
