Sweetgrass Books did an outstanding job on American Trinity. Their truly professional handling of the book project through all phases, attention to detail, and exemplary communications skills were extraordinary. Having published ten books with many other publishers, the experience with Sweetgrass Books is the best of my career.

Get Started


Sweetgrass Books was a joy to work with. They handled a difficult design job with aplomb. Despite the tight production schedule, they met (and sometimes beat) every deadline. And the resulting book is beautiful!

I am a first time author. Farcountry Press was wonderful to work with.

Kathy Springmeyer was so patient with me and my many questions. She was always very quick to answer all my questions via email or phone call. Zachary Basinger was also very good about news releases and helping me with that process. I definitely would recommend them to anyone interested and writing a book. My book was not perhaps the typical book about Montana but a biography of my mother’s life, initially written for my grandchildren who never knew my mom, but Kathy encouraged me to publish my book with them. I’ve been very satisfied with the entire process.

I can recommend Sweetgrass Books enthusiastically and without any reservation whatsoever. Kathy Springmeyer and those she works with are a delight across the board. I’m absolutely sure that you can’t do better. I have been delighted with all of my dealings with them.

Sweetgrass Books could not have been more professional, responsive, or creative. The finished product easily met my expectations in terms of quality and attention to detail. Our book, Images of McCall, has been a huge success. The amount of sales in such a short time has exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Sweetgrass Books.
— Ingre Milleman, Images of McCall
What a team! Working with patient professionals Kathy, Steph and Zachary turned the daunting process of creating and publishing my book, YellowStones, into pure joy! The team so graciously put up with my unending questions and guided me through every step of the way. I’m so pleased and proud, and I thank you all so much!
— Caroline McClure, YellowStones: What Do You See?

This was my first experience self-publishing a book. After discussing the project with a number of other publishers, it seemed like an almost overwhelming undertaking. It was at that point that I came in contact with Sweetgrass Books and their Director of Publications, Kathy Springmeyer. Kathy took the time to explain the self-publishing process in detail and what to expect during the entire publishing operation. She was always available to answer all my questions and concerns. Steph, the book designer, did a fantastic job of putting the book together so that it presented my photography in the best possible way. I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Sweetgrass Books as the entire process could not have been better.
— Steve Stark, Nature Through My Eyes, Colorado

It was a delight working with the staff at Sweetgrass Books. They are professional, competent, and punctual with promised deadlines. The finished book exceeded my expectations.
