About The Overmountain Press

Founded in 1970, The Overmountain Press is primarily a publisher of Southern history and non-fiction. Our titles include county histories, Revolutionary and Civil War history, cookbooks, photography, railroad history, regional essays, and tall tales. Overmountain is a family-owned business that publishes around thirty new titles each year—including reprints of hard-to-find regional history. In the past few years we have ventured into children’s fiction with picture books set in and about the South. In 2000 we began publishing Southern mysteries under our imprint, Silver Dagger Mysteries. We are always looking for new titles, so if you think your book fits our list, then review these guidelines and submit your manuscript accordingly.
