This Exhilarating Collection explores the many ways women find fulfillment, solace, and joy when they head into the great outdoors alone. While many women dream of solo adventure, these women show how it's done. Whether hiking in Nepal, climbing Half Dome in Yosemite, sailing with sharks off Cape Cod, huddling for the night in a snow cave after a skiing accident, or camping solo to prove to themselves that they're "tough," the women in this collection eloquently convey not only the thrills of the solo adventure, but also examine the complicated motivations and fears that can accompany such journeys. With its thoughtful exploration of numerous themes -- trust and intuition, danger and invincibility, challenge and reward -- and its celebration of adventure, this collection is sure to provide ample inspiration for those contemplating their own forays into the wild.
