books for
burning it all down
planting seeds in the ashes
becoming rooted
breaking the attention economy
reenchanting the earth
books for hoping
beyond the end of the world


Scorched Earth Press is a small publishing house and zine distro dedicated to radical political ecology. We publish work that reclaims “nature writing” from a settler perspective. This can take the form of:

  • deep histories of place that enable us to better reckon with where we are
  • theory that troubles colonial distinctions between natural and cultural
  • language learning resources, to unconstrain our ways of interpreting the world

We believe that books can be tools for claiming power, even in the face of the sixth extinction and its corollary crises.
