Latah Books is an independent book publisher located in Spokane, Washington. We are proud to work with numerous award-winning and bestselling veterans, as well as talented new authors hungry to make their mark.


Why Latah?

A Nez Perce word, Latah is the name of the creek along which most of our staff has lived, worked, recreated, meditated, and fallen in love for many years. Latah Creek is a modest but vital stream flowing onward to greater waters. We can't imagine a more fitting name for the spirit of our enterprise, and for honoring the legacy of those who cultivated this land before us.

This overflowing travelogue may appeal to readers of National Geographic, fishing enthusiasts, and others willing to take this highly detailed journey."

"I had almost given up reading novels...then I picked up Creature of the CascadesHere is something you don't see every day. A wordsmith with depth who has not only lived the outdoor life; he's an observer of the critters and the characters of the Northwest. Rob Phillips writes real places into this page-turner, and he is not averse to taking risks with humor, suspense and wordplay. I was hooked from the first jump."
