Monongahela Books is an independent publishing company located in Morgantown, West Virginia. It is situated in a 19th-century storefront overlooking the Monongahela River in a ghostly district of town that vanished a good many years ago, making our storefront difficult to locate, particularly when the murky mists of time are drifting in off the river.

We are easier to find on the Web, at MonongahelaBooks.com. We specialize in books of local history, military history and regional literature. Our titles include books on the 18th century frontier, the Civil War, the First World War and the Great Depression.

Our literary offerings include titles by Jared Carter, Dana Gioia, and the first book-length study of the recently rediscovered poet of the First World War, John Allan Wyeth.

To read extended excerpts from many of our books, visit the Monongahela Books Blog.

Monongahela Books also carries an extensive selection of used books, mostly on American history. You are welcome to peruse our titles at leisure in our Used Book Annex.

A Narrative Poem
by BJ Omanson

A man is driving through the
middle of the night in the middle
of nowhere, in what used to be
the Old Republic, the old
America, and he breaks down
and begins walking--- through a
night that never ends in a nation
that is not quite gone.
