Leading Out

Leading Out includes the stories of more than twenty-five outstanding women climbers: Bachendri Pal tells her gripping story of being the first Indian woman to reach the top of Mt. Everest; Ann Kruse battles raging storms on Mt. McKinley; Colette Richard, blind since age two, summits Mont Tondu in the French Alps, and much more.

Curtis Creek Manifesto

The best fishing guide ever. Takes all the mystery out of those knots, reels and arcane latin names, and is a straight shooting testimony to the fact that fly fishing is mostly about instinct and magic.

Uncommon Waters

Uncommon Waters captures the bracing adventure and meditative moments of fishing in the words of thirty-four women anglers, including Joan Wulff, Keri Hulme, Lorian Hemingway, Margaret Atwood, Audre Lorde and many more. Literary proof positive that women don’t lie about the size.


"A very impressive collection of travel pieces by women who took to the byways — road, river, and trail — with only themselves as company. Rogers has gathered here almost two dozen pieces that sparkle with insight into what it means to solo in the great outdoors… Crackingly good writing throughout, a heady stew rich with savory chunks of information for those, women or men, wishing to go it alone.” -Kirkus Reviews

The Bad Girls’ Guide to the Open Road

Don’t even think about taking a road trip without this. A hilarious, in-your-face travelog/self-help book (glove compartment size with nifty hot pink cover) that’s sure to get adventure-seeking gals everywhere in their cars. Packed with practical and not-so-practical information on where to go (the Elvis Is Alive Museum), which Road Sisters to bring along (ones with trust funds are good), essential tunes and tips such as 14 ways to open a beer bottle on your car and 11 uses for a condom.
