"The book every outdoor-loving woman should have on her shelf."
--Misadventures Magazine


Hike, camp, backpack, and navigate the wilderness like a pro with this personable guide to outdoor adventure. This fun, practical handbook covers everything from "feminine functions" (like dealing with your period and peeing in the woods) to staying safe (like protecting yourself from strangers). You'll also find chapters that help you prepare for--and make the most of--your time in the wilderness with information and advice on:


- Gear lists
- Personal Care
- Camp setup
- Fire building
- Weather
- Navigation
- Food & Water


Fun and informative, A Woman's Guide to the Wild will inspire you to get out on your own or with your girlfriends, explore the wilderness, and get a little dirty.
