Women in Wilderness: Writings in Photographs
Susan Zwinger, Ann Zwinger
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1995 - Nature - 100 pages
Women in Wilderness takes readers on a journey like no other. Here, in ten captivating essays, are women's perspectives and distinctive attitudes toward nature and the wonders that the wild has to offer. From the mid-Atlantic coast to the depths of the Grand Canyon to the untamed ranges of Alaska, joys and sorrows and even surprises meet these writers as they experience the wild and find that its beauty, its loneliness, and its brutal harshness not only challenge them, but also nourish their spirits and grant them the gift of solitude. Sixty-five full-color photographs by top women nature photographers grace the text, and thoughtful introductions by the editors of this volume - renowned nature writers and daughter-mother team Susan and Ann Zwinger - make Women in Wilderness a fulfilling journey for both the mind and the soul.
