A Woman's Guide to the Wild: Your Complete Outdoor Handbook
By: Rudy McConnell (author)Paperback
For any woman who wants to get outside and play, here is the definitive guide to being a woman in the great outdoors. This guide covers the matters of most concern to women, from "feminine functions" in the wilderness to how to deal with condescending rangers and arrogant fellow travellers. Outlining the basics of wilderness survival tailored to women's unique needs, including gear lists, setting up camp, building a fire, food and water, safety, weather and navigation, it's written by an Oregon geologist and Outdoor School instructor (and avid outdoors woman). It covers the basics for traditional outdoor recreational activities like hiking, camping and backpacking, as well as other outdoor sports such as kayaking, snowshoeing and cycling.
Ruby McConnell is a writer, dancer and geologist. Her published works include professional geologic papers, personal essays, dance reviews, short stories and her blog, 'Girl Gone Wild'. Her work has appeared in magazines such as Misadventures, Oregon Quarterly, Seattle Backpackers, Bird Watcher's Digest and Fungi.
