Overview

Women in the Wild builds on the success of the Travelers' Tales titles for women (award-winning A Woman's World and Gutsy Women). Lucy McCauley, editor of Travelers' Tales Spain, collects women's travel stories as they foray into the wilderness, kayak the whitewater of an exotic land, or bike the outback country. These women instinctively recognize in Mother Nature a direct connection to a source of their power as women. They make pilgrimages back to their instincts and return with their inner wildness reaffirmed.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Following the tradition of the "Travelers' Tales" series, this collection explores the themes of wilderness in everyday life. Here women experience life through nature and all it has to offer, and even far-flung journeys lead back to the self. A tiny daughter plays with building blocks made up of rocks and shells collected from every beach her mother visited on a trip around the world. A young woman sees the magic of the Icelandic mountainside by exploring the folklore of the raven symbol given to her at the beginning of her trip. Traveling through the desert of India, unable to speak the language of the people or to sleep more than two hours a day, a woman fights to keep her sanity. Authors include such notables as Alice Walker, Jane Goodall, and Louise Erdrich. Recommended for public libraries.--Stephanie Papa, Baltimore Cty. Circuit Court Law Lib., Towson, MD
