Summary
A thrilling look at 25 female adventurers from around the world who made their marks on history. Women have long been badass adventurers, loop the looping as trick pilots or braving the grueling climb to the top of Mount Everest. But their stories have not always got the recognition they deserve. Here are the stories of 25 remarkable women who have soared the skies, climbed the world{u2019}s highest peaks and sailed around the world. There are the famous adventurers, such as Amelia Earhart and Junko Tabei, as well as the lesser-known women, such as Diana Nyad, who at age 64 became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage (and trust us, she might have needed one!). Alongside each biography are fun, interactive sidebars that show kids just what it takes to become an adventurer themselves, like how to survive an avalanche or what exactly happens to your body in space. The featured women are incredibly diverse, with many stories of people of color, women with disabilities and LGBTQ+ women. What they all have in common is that they didn{u2019}t let anything get in the way of their dreams. With playful illustrations to enhance the compelling stories, it{u2019}s a book that shows kids that anything {u2014} and any adventure {u2014} is possible!
