Aventures and Challenges: Real Life Stories by Girls and Young Women is a great book! Very inspirational! The stories in the book make you want to just get up and make your own adventures. There was one story that really stood out to me, Solo by Frieghter to South America by Nellie Kelly. While traveling with people she didn't know, she conquered her fear of being alone and saw things that most people might never see. This book helps you conquer any fear that you might have about making your own adventure by helping you plan your own adventure step by step. This book is also unique because it gives you a timeline of what women have accomplished throughout the years. Adventures and Challenges is great for all ages!

This book shares several inspirational stories from girls and young women who used adventure to challenge themselves beyond their prceived limits. The stories they tell are stories that come from the heart. They share how their challenges, physical, emotional or spiritual, touched and gave them more confidence to take on more challenges. They learned "they can do it" with the right attitude and desire to succeed.
The young women featured in this book can be an inspiration for many young readers. Young people are capable of making a difference in their lives as well as the lives of others. This is demonstrated in this book.
The book ends with a sequential listing of significant accomplishments women have made througout history. This provides a nice reminder that women have been accomplishing amazing things for hundreds of years, and will continue to as we strengthen their character and confidence. This is an enjoyable book for women of all ages to read.

By A Customer on November 22, 2000
This collection gives the reader an ear to the authentic voices of young women who confronted their personal and socially-imprinted limitations in a wide range of circumstances. While nature often provides the backdrop and circumstances of challenge, the stories are really about struggles with teamwork and inner demons. A very good collection, and what I hope is an increasingly important "genre", from persons deserving praise, guidance, mentoring, and finally, gratitude for setting down their stories.
