Welcome to Clairitage Press

We’re a small press with a big mission
capturing history before it vanishes.

We started with a single volume about Silver Mountain City and the true tale of Alpine County’s 1860s silver boom. As we began to uncover more history of the Eastern Sierra, we added the Alpine Heritage series: self-guided tour books to help visitors explore long-forgotten historic sites in Markleeville, Fredericksburg, Diamond Valley, and Woodfords.

Then, because we wanted to encourage families to preserve their own unique history, we created a guide for how to do just that: the LifeStory Workbook.

From the recollections of local ranchers to long-forgotten tales of passing emigrants, we’ve helped put memories on paper for future generations.

We hope you will read, treasure, and find inspiration in these special books for years to come!
