Launched in 1961 as UNP’s first trade imprint, Bison Books reflects the Press’s commitment to general-interest books that appeal to the educated reader. Originally published as inexpensive paperbacks, Bisons (as they became known) quickly caught on. Notable Bison Books authors include André Breton, William F. Cody, Loren Eiseley, Michel Foucault, Che Guevara, David Lavender, Dale Morgan, Wright Morris, Tillie Olsen, Mari Sandoz, Wallace Stegner, Leo Tolstoy, Philip Wylie, Stefan Zweig, and a host of other writers of regional and international acclaim. While Bison Books remain a general-interest imprint, the press is re-emphasizing its effort to recruit and publish top-notch books about the trans-Mississippi West.
In an effort to make these stories more widely available, the University of Nebraska Press is pleased to offer its Bison Books virtually. Now, you may tour the West from anywhere with Virtually Bison Books, an electronic portal to the ebooks that preserve the West’s myths, lore, and history. Begin your tour today!
