Welcome to Three Waters Publishing

If you pour out a glass of water on top of a certain hill in northern Minnesota, one-third of it will roll down the northern slope, into the Rainy River, across Canada, and eventually into the Hudson Bay. Another third will go southeast into Lake Superior,  “Big Water,” Gitchi-Gami, and out through the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Atlantic Ocean. The remainder will make its way into the Mississippi River, meandering through the fertile farmland of Middle America, until it is disgorged into the Gulf of Mexico.

Three great bodies of water, to the north, east, and south, all are born atop a hill in northern Minnesota.

In geography, this is called a triple divide.

In Ojibwe lore, it is known as the Hill of Three Waters.

At Three Waters Publishing, we call it the source of our inspiration.
