About Burford Books

Burford Books is an independent book publisher based in Ithaca, NY, in New York’s Finger Lakes.
Our specialty is books on the outdoors, in the widest possible definition of the term, with titles on everything from golf to sailing.  Our list of saltwater fishing titles is particularly extensive, and we have a distinguished lineup of books on military history, food and wine, gardening and outdoor living, adventure travel, and other topics,  including books on various aspects of life in the Finger Lakes and upstate New York.  Many of our titles are available as ebooks and can be purchased for Kindle, Nook, iPad and other e-readers.  Our books are sold world-wide, with primary distribution in the US, Canada, and the UK.    Sales to the book trade are administered by National Book Network, an $81-million book-distribution company with a strong team of field and house reps, and we pride ourselves on an extensive network of specialty accounts served by our Ithaca-based marketing team.  We welcome comments or questions on any of our books and look forward to hearing from you.
