Women's Adventures in the Wild
Edited by Susan Fox Rogers, this collection of 20 essays picks up where the celebrated Solo left off, exploring anew the many ways that women find adventure, fulfillment, solace, and joy when they head into the great outdoors alone.
Marybeth's essay in this collection is "Day of Listening."
"In Going Alone, we meet the truest kind of female adventurers--those undaunted by solitude. In these crisp and engaging essays, they bike, paddle, snowshoe and climb their way over dramatic and everchanging terrain. What emerges is a solid metaphor for the lives of women everywhere, in which it becomes clear our strength and ability to face down challenges comes from nowhere but within." ~Sara Corbett
"These essays encapsulate the human spirit, and in particular the female spirit." ~ Toronto Globe & Mail, July 31, 2004
