About Us

Walking-on-waterIncorporated in 1997, Winnipeg-based Heartland Associates produces books that are meant to be read and read to last. We invest in high production values because books should be a visual treat for the eyes as well as the mind. After the initial flip through, you'll find the content worth reading from cover to cover.

Our books delve deeply into North America's ancient history and natural landscapes, with lavish illustrations, archival paintings, beautiful maps, commissioned artwork, and magnificent photography. They appeal not only to history buffs, but to those who love to explore the continent's wild places and its fascinating past.

We also dedicate ourselves to biographies, fiction and politics, sharing stories that variously inspire, educate, entertain and provoke.


Responsible for our growing reputation is the Heartland team: writers, editors, designers, photographers and artists who collaborate on books that explore North America's cultural diversity and the relationship of its people with the natural history of the continent. Over the years, Heartland has developed a number of special projects, showcasing diverse subjects, regions and histories of our continent. This includes commissions for local stories and newsmakers, theatric productions, and school-tested educational tools.

Heartland Associates is a fully independent partnership committed to telling the stories of North America to a large audience.  Our attention to detail has paid off with many awards and the enthusiasm of our retailers, but the best accolades are from readers, who write to us from around the world.

Kisiskatchewan: The Great River Road

Award: McNally Robinson Book of the Year

Based on the journal entries Orkneyman William Tomison wrote daily in his various capacities with the HBC, these writings, always in his elegant script, paint an outline of life at the time. This book faithfully follows his journals, but has gone beyond them to recreate one of the most turbulent periods in our history. Read More
