"A fascinating and engrossing study of a ground-breaking woman traveler and writer. The subject of this biography, Jane Dolinger, demonstrates that the mid-twentieth-century idea that the jungle was 'no place for a girl' was wrong. Abbott's careful and sympathetic study places this amazing popular writer's life in its historical and literary context. Recommended for women's studies, popular culture, and travel studies scholars." - Robin Roberts, Professor of English and Women's and Gender Studies, Louisiana State University
"Like Amelia Earhart, Jackie Kennedy, and others, Jane Dolinger was an Alpha Woman who carved out a unique, grand life in inspirational style. To learn of her exploits and read her travel pieces, one wonders why she isn't already among the top tier of the most admired women in history. Thankfully, Abbott's lively, well-researched biography makes Jane's lasting contribution to the travel genre abundantly clear." - Tina Santi Flaherty, author of What Jackie Taught Us: Lessons from the Remarkable Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
