These true stories by brave, independent women will motivate you to be bold, explore, and take risks—both outdoors and in. Some of these books are memoirs, some are essay collections, and all of them feature female narrators who are adventurous, introspective, and deeply at home in their chosen landscapes, from the Pacific Crest Trail to the Great Salt Lake to the Blue Ridge Mountains and beyond. These women confront questions about nature, grief, art, love, and more with inspiring clarity, strength, and insight.
