WOMEN IN THE WILD:
True Stories of Adventure and Connection

Editor: Lucy McCauley

What better way to discover the wild woman within than to read about phenomenal women who forayed into the wilderness, kayaked the whitewater of an exotic land, or biked the outback country. They made pilgrimages back to their instincts and returned with their inner wildness reaffirmed, and they did it with high adventures in the wild-rafting a river in Borneo, diving in Mexican cenotes, climbing Mt. Everest.

In this book, editor McCauley shares with us their journeys into the natural world: a lone hiker trekking the Appalachian Trail, a wildlife worker who is attacked by a hyena in Israel, a traveller who pulls off a gutsy rescue of endangered animals in Vietnam. You'll read stories of women exploring the wildness of their own natures--a woman who confronts her hunter's instincts while fishing for mackerel in Ireland, another who navigates through the wildish aspects of her sexuality after witnessing a Sicilian tuna slaughter.

These tales transform possibility into reality. Reading these stories and feeling the stirrings of your own restlessness is a wake-up call, a message to stop ignoring the soul's deepest longings. Let these stories act as an invocation, calling you to your own ventures into the wild!

Notable authors in this collection include: Annie Dillard, Louise Erdrich, Jane Goodall, Tracy Johnston, Robyn Davidson, Gretel Ehrlich, Terry Tempest Williams, and Alice Walker.
