Welcome!
Barranca Press publishes literature inspired by international travel.  

The Press gets its name from the many barrancas, canyons, and rifts around the world that are sites of both cultural interaction and division.  In the photo above, the Rio Grande Gorge cuts its way through the high desert near Taos where the Press was born. 

Our booklist includes:

  • Novels,
  • Photo journalism,
  • Children’s Books, and
  • Memoirs.
Barranca Press is an independent press 
based in Taos, New Mexico.
