About NewSage Press, Inc.


 

Vision Statement and History

NewSage Press is an independent press located about fifteen miles from downtown Portland in Troutdale, Oregon, dubbed the gateway to the Columbia Gorge. Maureen R. Michelson founded NewSage Press in 1985 with the vision to create quality books in both content and production. Over the years many NewSage Press books have received special recognition and rave reviews from organizations such as the American Library Association, which has chosen NewSage books for its list of “Best Books for Young Adults.”

The NewSage Press book, Three Cats, Two Dogs, One Journey Through Multiple Pet Loss, by David Congalton, received the Merial Human-Animal Bond Award, Best Book for 2000. Blessing The Bridge by Rita M. Reynolds and Singing to the Sound by Brenda Peterson have received One Spirit Book Club selection, and Barbara K. Robert’s book Death Without Denial, Grief Without Apology is a Children’s Cancer Association award winner. Blessing the Bridge was also on amazon.com’s Best of 2001.

NewSage Press books cover a myriad of interests and social concerns, including the animal and human bond, environmental issues, nature, women’s issues, and more. Many NewSage Press books combine words and images to tell the story. Books by NewSage Press can be found in bookstores throughout the United States and Canada as well as in libraries, schools, and universities.
