Books Printed and Shipped

This week was a big one! We picked up the printed Lone Mountain books from South Carolina and brought them to Knoxville, TN. We then had a two-day shipping party during which we prepped and sent off about 500 packages! The Lone Mountain book has been officially launched into the world! May it inspire minds young and old everywhere.

If you’re in the United States, you will probably receive your order next week. If you are outside of the country, your package was shipped priority mail and will likely arrive a bit later than those inside the US. The digital rewards- Si Kahn’s “Veteran’s Day” mp3 and the wallpaper image- will be sent out via e-mail within a week. If you have any questions about your order, please e-mail us at

Below are a few photos from our shipping party. Meet the production crew that brought this book to you!

We are proud that this book will help to fund efforts by organizations we deeply admire, including Mountain Justice and the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy.

We hope you enjoy and share these books with the special kids in your life. Our biggest hope is that Lone Mountain will be a spring board for some children to start seeing their world a little differently, and feel empowered to preserve and celebrate not just the Appalachian region but ecosystems across the world. Storytelling is a powerful tool for change- thank you all for being agents in this story.

With warm regards and gratitude,

Saro LT, Erin Bicknese, and Bonnie Swinford
