Hardcover, 256 pages, July 2000

This exciting volume from Michele Slung, one of today's most acclaimed and prolific cultural writers, showcases the inspiring, pulse-pounding stories of a range of boldly adventurous women - from the nineteenth century to the twenty-first. The awe-inspiring first-person accounts collected here show us the world as we've rarely seen it -- through the eyes of those revolutionary women who dared to venture into it. Witness the exploits of astronaut Shannon Lucid, world-class climber Catherine Destivelle, arctic explorer Helen Thayer, Victorian-era world traveler Isabella Bird Bishop, and more than a dozen others. Vivid prose, quotes from the adventurers, a chronology of women in exploration, illustrations, and archival and contemporary photos bring the stories of these adventurers to life.
