Celebrate the powerful women who are making massive strides in outdoor adventure sports through this book of photography, interviews, and profiles of 40 women from across the globe. Women have become active participants in outdoor adventure sports, from rock climbing and mountain biking to surfing and whitewater rafting. Filled with gorgeous photography and inspiring stories, this book introduces 40 women from all over the globe and shows them following their outdoor passions. Professional athletes, pioneers, and experts are showcased, with stories about their backgrounds, their goals, and the adversities they have overcome in their chosen sports. The book includes Steph Davis, an American base jumper, wingsuit flyer, and one of the world's leading climbers who started Moab Base Adventures, the first company to offer tandem base jumps from cliffs as well as classes and training specifically for women. Also included are Christine Oriol and Claire Roiron who founded Women Rockin' Pamirs, the first organization that teaches mountaineering to women from Tajikistan so they can become professional trekking guides. The stunning photography in the book shows the women in action: chalking up for the climb, hiking along mountain ridges, racing on dirt tracks, and surfing the perfect breaks at sunrise. Together, these images and inspiring texts are a celebration of women's strength and empowerment in a heavily male-dominated scene.
