For every woman who has ever been called outdoorsy comes a collection of stories that inspires unforgettable adventure.

Beautiful, empowering, and exhilarating, She Explores is a spirited celebration of female bravery and courage, and an inspirational companion for any woman who wants to travel the world on her own terms.

Combining breathtaking travel photography with compelling personal narratives, She Explores shares the stories of 40 diverse women on unforgettable journeys in nature: women who live out of vans, trucks, and vintage trailers, hiking the wild, cooking meals over campfires, and sleeping under the stars. Women biking through the countryside, embarking on a road trip, or backpacking through the outdoors with their young children in tow.

Complementing the narratives are practical tips and advice for women planning their own trips, including:

Preparing for a solo hike
Must-haves for a road-trip kitchen

Planning ahead for unknown territory
Telling your own story

A visually stunning and emotionally satisfying collection for any woman craving new landscapes and adventure.

Review quote

"a series of odes to adventures in the wild told by nature-loving women-both beginners and badasses-and prepare to plot your own expedition. You'll find hard-won advice amid the captivating tales; as one notes, "taking a chance on the out- doors is always worth it." -- Shape "This month, author and photographer Gale Straub is releasing She Explores, 40 first-person tales from women inspired by their adventures. Highlights include a musical duo who play sunrise summit concerts (past audiences: Mount Pilchuck in Washington and the Monte Cristo Range in Utah); Sarah Attar, one of Saudi Arabia's first female Olympic athletes, who runs the backcountry trails of the Eastern Sierra; and Marine Malvar de Jesus, who swapped a career as a lawyer for the life of a mountain nomad." -- Conde Nast Traveller (UK)
