Waterstones Says

The history of mankind’s journeys into the unknown is a well-trodden path – far less so the accounts of women’s place in that history. Wild Women goes some way to rectify that omission, chronicling the daring and pioneering stories of female adventurers in their own words. Brought together by popular presenter and author Mariella Frostrup, this is a brisk, humorous and often unexpected collection that remaps the territory of global exploration.

 

From Constantinople to Crimea, from Antarctica to the Andes, women throughout history have travelled across land and sea and recorded their adventures. This is a collection of more than 50 of the greatest escapades ever experienced and told by women.

Curated by Mariella Frostrup, these works span the globe from the 1700s to the present day and include well-known heroines such as Isabella Bird, Dervla Murphy and Cheryl Strayed as well as unknown and undiscovered adventurers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This fine anthology brings a female voice to a subject too long dominated by men ... It curates some incredible tales' - Wanderlust.

'At a time when #MeToo is striking rather a strident note, these insights into the peculiar experiences and observations of courageous and articulate women in a male-dominated world are a joy to read' - Country Life.

'Like any good travel book, Wild Women succeeds in casting the reader's mind off on journeys of its own, inspiring fresh plans and what the Germans call Fernweh, or a longing for faraway places' - TLS.

“Inspiring and evocative”

A wonderful collection of women’s adventures written by their own hand. Inspiring but evocative enough that you don’t need to leave the sofa. From Anna Leonowens to Felicity Aston they are incredible women.
