Gifts of the Wild

The best in outdoor literature by women writers, organized around twelve themes — from “Finding Joy” to “Living with Grace” — which illustrate our deep and sustaining connection to the natural world. Whether lyrical meditations on nature or bracing adventure travel tales, these stories record wilderness experience from a uniquely female point of view. Writers include Pam Houston, Lorian Hemingway, Ann Linnea, Jessica Maxwell, Holly Morris and many more.
