About Fulcrum Publishing
In physics, the word fulcrum denotes the point at which motion begins. We strive
to create books that will inspire you to move forward in your life or to take
action. Whether it’s exploring the world around you or discussing the ideas and
issues that shape that world, our books provide the tools to create forward
motion in your life.
Our mission is simple, yet profound:
Publish books that inspire readers to LIVE life to the fullest and
something new every day.
More than twenty-five years ago, when Bob Baron started Fulcrum Publishing, he did so
with the intention of publishing high-quality books from extraordinary authors.
Fulcrum recognizes that good writers make good publishers.
To that end, we have published books from prominent politicians (Gov. Richard
Lamm, Sen. Gary Hart, Sen. Eugene McCarthy), leading Native Americans (Wilma
Mankiller, Vine Deloria Jr., Joseph Bruchac), master gardeners (Lauren Springer,
Tom Peace, Richard Hartlage), and important organizations in the environmental
community (Campaign for America’s Wilderness, World Wilderness Congress,
Defenders of Wildlife).
Our books have received accolades from the likes of Tom Brokaw, Kurt Vonnegut,
Gloria Steinem, William Sears, MD, Paul Newman, Elizabeth Dole, and Nelson Mandela.
In addition, Fulcrum authors have received awards from such prestigious organizations as Book Sense,
Colorado Center for the Book, ForeWord magazine, National Book Foundation, National Parenting Publications,
New York Public Library, PEN USA Literary Awards, Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian,
Teacher’s Choice, and more.
