At Front Street Books, independence is the watchword for bookselling. We follow our own and our customers’ decisions on what to stock in our store—and we have a broad and deep, personal, selection.
We’ve served Alpine and the Big Bend area of West Texas since 1994. Our inventory includes new, used, and out-of-print titles. It emphasizes local and regional subjects, of course, but we carry all the national/regional bestsellers and a broad range of other topics, favoring History, Science, Natural History, Literature, Children's Fiction and Non-Fiction, Religion and Spirituality, Cookbooks, General Fiction, and Science Fiction and Fantasy.
We ship orders all over Texas and the U.S. What you don’t find in our store online, we’ll get in a jiffy from our shelves or from a wholesaler and send it anywhere you are. All you have to do is call us or e-mail us with your requests.

Water, the source of life
in a desert region...
This is the remarkable story of Reeves County's Madera Valley, which includes the towns of Pecos and Balmorhea. In 1870, Mexicans and Anglos began to settle there, where native Americans had already been drawn to the valley's remarkable natural water supply.
While there was plenty of water for irrigation, drinkable water was not available for entire valley until 1970. This is an interesting and here-to-fore untold story by a descendant of one of those early settlers.
