Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Drawing on the National Geographic archives, Slung (Murder and Other Acts of Literature, 1997, etc.) deftly highlights 16 noted women adventurers who climbed mountains, met with cannibals, and lived in space. A graceful introduction by Reeve Lindbergh suggests that these women's endeavors were explorations of the limitless inner spaces of the spirit that their journeys revealed to them as much as they were explorations of unknown external terrain. Women like the photographer and Arctic explorer Yva Momatiuk ("stick me on a hill in the Arctic for a week and I'll be fulfilled") or the once-ailing Isabella Bird Bishop (who in the mid-1800s began traveling the globe, venturing as far north in the Canadian wilderness as Hudson Bay, and found that "knocking about, open air life, in combination with sufficient interest, is the one in which my health and spirits are best"). Divided into eight sections (each sharing such common themes as flight or exploration in Africa), the profiles range in time from the 18th century to the present—a range that is a pertinent reminder that the intrepid woman of spirit and curiosity is not merely a contemporary phenomenon. Slung introduces women like Austrian Ida Pfeiffer (who survived encounters with cannibals and headhunters in Borneo and Sumatra, and explored the Brazilian rain forest), French rock climber Catherine Destivelle (who has climbed the north face of the Eiger and the challenging Nameless Tower in the Karakorams), Shannon Lucid (who spent time on the Mir space station), Louise Arner Boyd (a wealthy debutante who explored and photographically documented the Arctic in the 1920s and '30s), and Florence Baker (a Hungarian whowasrescued from slavery in Turkey and discovered a source of the Nile River with her husband Sam in the 1860s). Intriguing introductions to remarkable women that whet rather than satisfy the appetite.

    I bought this book over 4 years ago. I have taken it around the world and back and i have just recently finished my journal entries. I Bought it again because of its durablity. Its lasted this long through treks in costa rican rain forests and has seen the beaches of Thailand. Of all the journals i have seen or used, this is the only one i would suggest buying.
