Editorial Reviews


“It will entertain you as much as it will motivate you to live life on the edge.” ―Bust Magazine

“An exhilarating read. This book will inspire adventurers and armchair travellers alike.” ―Jane Robinson, Author Wayward Women, Unsuitable for Ladies

“Final proof, if any were needed, that you don't need a beard to explore the world.” ―Hugh Thomson, author of The White Rock: An Exploration of the Inca Heartland

“An inspiring read. It opens up possibilities for every kind of traveler. From wearing purple satin bloomers, to eating reindeer maggots and of course tying the breast bone of the hoopoe bird to your arm to make you bullet proof. A practical guide no self respecting woman traveler should be without. After reading this book you will be reaching for the computer to book your next adventure. It will put a spring in your step and will make you put your shoulders back. Quite irresistible.

This eclectic mixture of funny, poignant and downright dangerous stories of women travelers is beautifully told with wit and verve but never sentimental. Quite magical.” ―Amanda Faber, Producer of The Race for Everest

Format: Hardcover
This book was a quick and light read that exposed me to so many women adventurers who I otherwise never would have discovered. The bibliography is invaluable, but unfortunately many of the books are out of print. Many thanks to Mr. Conefrey.
