The Rio Grande Gorge cuts its way through the high desert near Taos, New Mexico where the press was born.
Barranca Press gets its name from the barrancas, canyons, and rifts around the world. These barrancas seem to be physical barriers, but they are actually sites of interaction where peoples come together, producing linguistic and cultural creativity.
The press started by publishing literature inspired by inter-national and inter-cultural experiences. The current focus is on children's books that are bilingual or that feature a second language.
