Overview


Women in the Wild is a collection of thoughtful, insightful, and courageous adventures celebrating women in the outdoors. The stories weave a common thread of connection between the women’s lives and their experienes with the powerful forces of nature. The book offers hard-core high adventure such as climbing Everest, swimming across Lake Titicaca, and surviving a shark attack, but also looks at the softer side of Mother Nature with solitary fishing in Ireland, rescuing an injured pelican, and the simple act of giving birth. Authors span the generations, with more than forty years between the youngest and oldest, providing encounters that thrill, humble, induce awe, and remind us just how fragile our lives, and this planet, can be. The collection celebrates the many ways in which women inteact with the natural universe as prey, as protector, as hunter, as lover, and as survivor.

Join Alice Walker as she steps out her back door to connect with an ailing stallion, Jane Goodall and the chimpanzees in the forestsof the Congo, Lesley Hazelton as she flies high above the clouds, and GretelEhrlich as she is struck by lightning.
