Description

Culled from the National Geographic Society's vast 111-year old collection of first-person narratives by women explorers, the awe-inspiring accounts collected in Living with Cannibals and Other Women's Adventures shows us the world as we've rarely seen it - through the eyes of those revolutionary women who dared to venture into it. These are the women whose unfettered passion for travel, remarkable ability to brush off social hurdles, and intense curiosity about the unknown have done much to broaden our understanding of the of the world at large. Readers will witness the exploits of astronaut Shannon Lucid, world-class climber Catherine Destivelle, arctic explorer Helen Thayer, Victorian-era world traveller Isabella Bird Bishop and more than a dozen others. Along with firsthand testimonials and vivid prose by authore Michele Slung, the book features priceless geographic descriptions, quotes from the adventures, a chronology of women in exploration, illustrations, spectacular archival and contemporary photographs and an insighful introduction by Reeve Lindbergh, daughter of famous explorers Charles and Ann Lindbergh.
