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.

Adventures In Good Company

Covers bicycling, canoeing, fishing, surfing, sailing, rock climbing, dog sledding, skiing, trekking, etc. — as well as leadership programs, cultural exchange opportunities, and spiritual journeys. Issues particular to group travel (how to choose a company, what to expect from a guide, insurance, safety, etc.) are fully explored. More than 100 companies worldwide are profiled.

Pilgrimage to India

After 25 years away, writer and activist Pramila Jayapal returned to India in 1995 and spent two years reacquainting herself with the place where she was born and raised. Pilgrimage to India: A Woman Revisits Her Homeland captures some of her impressions and experiences as she confronts the culture that both enchants and enrages her. A recommended read for anyone who liked Adventure Divas’ India: Holy Cow.

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.

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.
