The Oliver Press
History, Biography, Geography, Art, and Science Books for Young Adult Readers.
At The Oliver Press we view history as much more than a collection
of facts and dates. While these nuts and bolts from the past are certainly
important, we believe that people and the events they shaped are truly
the bricks and mortar of history. Thats why our titles focus on
people, on the individuals whose thoughts and actions influenced the
lives we lead today.
We offer the following curriculum-based series:
- How It Happens: Full-color,
behind-the-scenes looks at how popular products are made and how everyday
