Curated by Mariella Frostrup, this book is an inspiring collection of women’s travel writing. It features some of the world’s best-known adventurers, including Amelia Earhart, Gertrude Bell and Dervla Murphy, as well as a number of equally impressive tales from lesser-known Wild Women. Featuring short excerpts from the diaries and writings of these pioneers, it’s a great book to dip in and out of. Akin to taking an adventure from your living room, you can travel from Constantinople to Crimea, from Antarctica to the Andes, on a collection of more than 50 escapades.
