Graves introduces readers to thirteen women who were influential explorers Each woman gets one spread with a column about their life and most famous accomplishments Further textboxes on the spread highlight major accomplishments places travelled etc Some of these women are well known names like Nellie Bly Amelia Earhart and Sacagewa others are not so well known like Ida Laura Pfeiffer Harriet Chalmers Adams and Gertrude Bell They explored any time between the mid 1700s to mid 1900s used different methods of transportation explored different areas of the world but all were intrepid adventurers and left their marks in society literature science archeology geography and I found the lesser known names of the thirteen women in here to be the most interesting pages particularly Gertrude Bell and Edith Durham who so positively impacted the areas they explored they are still revered by Ira and Albanian respectively This is a uick and fascinating read Recommended to curious readers looking for a short but very intriguing nonfiction read I can see this sparking further research in many readers as they hunt for info on various women I’ll definitely consider purchasing this for our library I received an ARC of this title from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Trail BlazersBy land sea and air women have traveled the globe blazing a trail of exploration discovery and empowerment This illustrated guide. Just like her other book about female rulers this book does a great job in introducing the reader to beautiful and daring women who have ventured forth to explore the world around them especially when it was looked down upon for them in their time The book of course includes both famous women such as Amelia Earhart Sacajawea and others whose names may not be mentioned in the majority of history books thus helping young girls and women to find new models to look up to But for the record I would have loved to know how Lisa Graves chose the women that she did I was disappointed that Osa Johnson wasn't mentioned at all just as much as she is normally left out of most historical records that propose to educate about strong and spirited women and at first I thought it was since her adventures were by the side of her husband and not as a single woman but after seeing some other women who were mentioned with their husbands it disappoints me that the Johnsons should have been left out Otherwise it was a good book and a uick read The book gives the name of the woman what titles she held and what her recognition may have been for There was a uick part that explained a summary of her life and some other added parts that either clarified a cultural point or even her contributions All in all it was a good starter book and one that would make for a wonderful present for girls whether they are adventurous or not
