About Us

Welcome to our store. We are located in Prescott, Ontario, on Canada's south coast, hard on the banks of the mighty St. Lawrence River.  Riverwash Books is an on-line bookstore carrying a wide variety of hard-to-find, unusual, rare, and out of print books. We have been selling on-line since 2003, and welcome the opportunity to help you obtain that special book.  For our United States customers, books ship from upper New York State (Ogdensburg, New York).

While we specialize in Military, History, and Canadiana, we also have an extensive selection of biographies, general fiction, and reference books.  

Photos of books are of the actual book in our possession. We do not use stock images. If you want additional photos of a book,  please let us know. We'll be happy to provide them.

Riverwash Books is proud to support the Friends of the Canadian War Museum.  Select military books on the site are being listed on their behalf.  These books can be found by searching with the keyword FCWM.  Proceeds from the sale of these books go the the Friends to help in their support for the Canadian War Museum.

Personal Service

At Riverwash Books, we care about our customers, and the books that we send you. We promptly and personally respond to all orders and questions. Customer satisfaction is important to us. We carefully and securely package each book for shipping, and email you when the book has been mailed (usually the next business day).
