Meet ten women who traveled deep into the wilderness, scaled daunting mountains, lived among headhunters…and didn’t let anyone stop them from following their dreams.
The lives of ten remarkable explorers are introduced to the reader. These ten women broke convention and faced dangers, most often in the name of science. Whether it was exploring the Arctic, the source of the Nile; the jungles of Mexico and South America, or the natives of Australia, these ten women contributed to the world and forever changed the notion that women were the weaker gender. These short biographical snippets should inspire readers to delve deeper and do some explorations of their own. An additional list of ten more women explorers is included in the author’s note.
