Celebrating the Life & Legacy of Stewart M. Green

Prolific author, photographer, rock climber, hiker, and historian Stewart M. Green recently died of a suspected heart attack on June 6, 2024. He was seventy-one years old.

A resident of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Stewart was a well-respected trailblazer in the climbing community who pushed countless boundaries. He authored dozens of essential guidebooks in over three decades of consistent effort, most of them including his spectacular photography. His guides to rock climbing in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New England, and beyond are recognized for their utility, accuracy, and visual appeal. He also contributed many hiking guides, scenic driving books, regional history books, and archeological titles published under FalconGuides, Globe Pequot, and other imprints.

“Stewart often spoke of his abiding dedication to the reader, a need to provide reliable and useful information. He was propelled to help us discover the magic in the natural world, and the beauty he always seemed to find in exploration,” said Max Phelps, Director of Sales, and a long-time colleague and friend of Stewart.

Stewart’s most recent book, Hiking Waterfalls Utah, sold through the first print run before its publication on June 4, 2024. FalconGuides hopes that Stewart’s incredible voice can live on through his writing and that new readers will continue to find inspiration in his work. He will be deeply missed.
