We’re proud to announce the launch of the final fundraiser to publish Lone Mountain! For this last stage, we’re using crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.
This fall we were able to fund over $3,000 needed for our campaign from generous contributions by regional organizations. Now, we’re so close to reaching our goal and publishing a real, tangible book that children can enjoy!
The best thing about this campaign is that you can directly order the book for yourself! Any donation of $15 or more automatically entitles you to your own copy of Lone Mountain. And…this campaign isn’t just a way to contribute to a great cause- it’s also a way for others to contribute to YOUR cause! We have priced our books at a low base price, so that other organizations focused on Appalachia’s future can resell the book at a decent profit to themselves.
In thanks and solidarity,
The Lone Mountain Project Team: Bonnie Swinford, Saro Lynch-Thomason and Erin Bicknese.
Praise for Lone Mountain:
“A parable for the possible, Lone Mountain is a timely and important story for kids, their families and schools, about the challenges in protecting our natural homelands. The beautiful illustrations and moving story will inspire readers to climb their own mountains- and take a stand.” – Jeff Biggers, Author of “The United States of Appalachia.”
“This book is a must-have for all elementary school science and social studies classes, whether they are located in the coal fields or in the high-rise canyons of big cities.” -Sue Massek, Activist, Musician and Educator, member of the Reel World String Band
