Salem Ridge Press

Since November 2005 Salem Ridge Press has had the mission of publishing quality children's books of the 1800's and early 1900's. Their book categories include:
  • Historical Fiction (broken down into three subcategories: Church, World, and American History)
  • Adventure
  • Allegory
  • and books for Young Readers

I have now read three books republished by Salem Ridge Press and have absolutely loved each one! Please see my book reviews by clicking on the following individual links:

  • Mary Jane - Her Book : recommended for ages 6-10, but it was perfect for my 5-year-old daughter.
  • The American Twins of the Revolution : recommended for ages 8-adult. My 5-year old enjoyed it but obviously did not fully understand the historical context yet. It is based on a TRUE story! I loved it and was sad when I came to the story's end.
  • Glaucia the Greek Slave : recommended for ages 10-adult. A more challenging fictional read but an excellent book to see the early Christian church at work in ancient Rome and Greece.

Salem Ridge Press offers most of their books in both hard and softcover. These are the types of books that will be favorites to be handed down in the family or to be happily purchased and given as gifts! Take a look, and while you're there sign up for their quarterly e-mail newsletter for a chance to win a free, newly-released book!
