The Bone People

Keri Hulme’s quirky, brilliant Booker Prize winning masterpiece, The Bone People, is an unconventional take on families, cultures and life on New Zealand’s South Island. It is a dark, twisted gem and one of our personal all-time favorites… definitely a must read. The book and the author were the subject of much ado in Adventure Divas’ New Zealand: Stroppy Sheilas & Mana Wahines.

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.

A Different Angle

From Pulitzer prize-winning author E. Annie Proulx (Brokeback Mountain) to fly casting champion Joan Salvato Wulff, this anthology presents “a different angle” on the literature of fly fishing and its great tales of adventure, renewal and discovery. Whether exploring the sensual and spiritual pleasures of casting a line or the realities of being a girl in the predominantly boy world of fly fishing, the ladies in this collection write with humor and eloquence.

Flaming Iguanas

Ms. Lopez is the author of several madcapped graphic novels and inspired comic strips. After reading her work you are both dying to meet the woman behind the pen, and terribly frightened at the prospect of such a meeting. Check in at for her latest antics. Last we heard she was torturing a perky pony-tailed publicist from her now-former publisher.
