Item description for Women in the Wild: True Stories of Adventure and Connection (Travelers' Tales) by Lucy McCauley...
Women in the Wild is a collection of striking stories of women who sought adventure in the extremes of nature and their own inner worlds. Some women are wild by nature; others discover their wildness by going into nature. The women in these tales delve into the wilderness, explore remote jungle rivers, climb Mt. Everest, and even survive a shark attack. Such adventures take them away from modern life and the distractions of domesticity, and into their own "wildness-in-waiting." Meet women with stories of high adventure in the wild --- rafting a river in Borneo, diving in Mexican cenotes, and hiking the Appalachians alone. Here too are stories of women exploring the wildness in their own nature --- the affinity a mother-to-be feels with skunks, bears, and mice; a woman who confronts her hunter's instincts while fishing for mackerel in Ireland; another who becomes strangely attuned to her own sexuality after witnessing a Sicilian tuna slaughter.

Women - experiencing Feb 11, 2000
This is a collection of experiences that come from women who are a cut above the norm. The stories include travelling experiences, but they are more about centered, courageous women who are paying attention to the life around them. Short, but well written, inspiring stories.
