Milestone Press Acquired By UGA Press

Milestone Press Acquired by UGA Press

We are happy to announce that Milestone Press has a new home. After more than 25 years  of adventure guidebook publishing, Milestone is now an imprint of the University of Georgia Press, where it will form the base of an expanding list of outdoor adventure guides produced by the oldest and largest book publisher in Georgia. We’re delighted our guides have found such a good home at UGA.

So what are we gonna do now? We have a backlog of adventure plans ready to go, but in the meantime, you can look for UGA to release Jim’s forthcoming book, Backpacking Overnights: North Georgia Mountains, Southeast Tennessee, in May—under the Milestone Press imprint, of course.

We are grateful to all who have supported and encouraged us since we published Jim’s first mountain bike guidebook in 1992. Our success would not have been possible without the authors, retailers, wholesalers, readers, and adventurers who believed in us from the beginning. To all who have written, read, loved and used, bought and sold our books over the years, we extend our sincere thanks.

The Milestone Press mission is passing into very capable hands. For more information, see UGA’s press release.

With all good wishes for future adventures,

Mary Ellen Hammond & Jim Parham
