Small Publisher Carves Niche in Regional Recreation Guides

It started with a simple guide to the hiking trails in Rochester, New York.
Seven years and 50,000 books later Footprint Press has captured the market
for outdoor recreation guidebooks in central and western New York State. If
you want to know where to go hiking, dog walking, backpacking, bird
watching, bicycling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, paddling or
exploring waterfalls, Footprint Press has a guide to point the way.

Operated by the husband/wife team of Rich and Sue Freeman, this
micro-publisher has chosen to specialize in recreation guidebooks and focus
on a specific geographic region. By keeping costs low and targeting their
efforts they have been able to operate a profitable publishing business from
year one. Along the way, they gained many loyal followers and inspired a
large segment of the population to get outdoors for fun and exercise.
