The true stories of these four women read like the most exciting of fictional adventure stories Annie Smith Peck climbed the highest mountain in Peru when she was 58 Delia J Akely who crossed Africa from East to West with only native helpers and whose writings on the Pygmies and various animals are very authoritative Marguerite Harrison who spied at the WWI peace talks and was imprisoned in Russia twice for spying and Louise Arner Boyd who planned and led seven scientific expeditions to the icebound coast of northeastern Greenland all come from varied backgrounds but they all have that indomitable spirit that led them to these great adventures Of course I have left out many more of their adventures For instance Marguerite traveled with two men with a caravan in the SyriaIranian border region while they made the first true documentary film This was the perfect book for me to read in March Women's History Month Why have I never heard of any of these women before There truly is a second history played out by women and minorities

Odern Jane Goodalls and Sally Rides these women represent a fascinating but forgotten era in the literature of exploratio. I found all 4 of these story to be extremely inspiring It is one of my all time favorite books of this variety To think that women can overcome the obstacles they faced to do such amazing things makes the obstacles I feel I face seems very small
