Founded in 1979 by passionate and renowned mountaineers Tony and Gillean Daffern, RMB has grown to become one of Canada's more vibrant, long-standing and evolving book publishers. Established in 1979 to specialize primarily in guidebooks for hikers, climbers and skiers, RMB has repositioned itself for the 21st century and now successfully publishes and promotes a dynamic, growing list of provocative, engaging and award-winning books on mountain history, adventure travel, outdoor culture, environmental consciousness, contemporary photography and children's books.

We're thankful to be working with a growing string of professional authors who are passionate about what they do and are acknowledged experts in their fields. Our books are published, edited, designed, marketed and promoted by a similarly devoted and focused team of three idealistic, tireless individuals who strive to grow RMB's publishing program into one that regularly exceeds expectations, challenges industry norms and appeals to a broad readership.
