Women Explorers chronicles the lives of six intrepid women whose hunger for adventure and knowledge compelled them on paths of discovery around the world. Their discoveries not only brought stores of information on topics ranging from ancient dinosaur fossils to life in Tibet, but also challenged the established roles of women in their fields. Earle became the first woman to be appointed chief scientist of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. She pioneered the first underwater habitat for women divers through a program sponsored by NASA and the U.S. Navy, and is recognized as one of the foremost champions of oceanic conservation in the world.
