Comments Solo: On Her Own Adventure

  • Linda

    Never hike alone. How many times have I been admonished not to hike solo? This advice has come from people I respect and I would like to comply, but I can’t. The joy and ultimate purpose of the walks I take is to let my mind wander and to take time to allow the tape to run and make room for new impressions. This meditative state is hard to achieve when there is another consciousness crowding in on your thoughts. So, even though my father warned me against walking alone of the bear invested, mi [...]

    A collection of tales of women adventurers travelling alone, all over the world, in all types of terrain. This was an inspiring, exhilarating, and insightful read. Women telling why they were venturing out alone-- biking through New Zealand or backpacking in Alaska-- and how it affected their psyches and emotions. On the one hand, I really don't need to be encouraged to "go now, go solo", because doing things I want to do while alone is my default mode. I need to be pushed into inviting other pe [...]


  • MsChris

    Fantastic collection of essays! I truly want to rush out and buy a copy of this book for every female I know.


  • Margie

    Really enjoyable collection of essays by women on being alone in the wilderness.


  • hhhhhhhhh

    love the theme, but the collection was uneven. some of these stories were compelling and inspiring, some were boring and poorly written.


  • Rae

    I found this book on the young adult bookshelf at the local thrift store. It is not a young adult book. I'll admit, I was so excited about it that I stopped reading the other book I was in the middle of and started reading this one. Unfortunately, the women in these stories only somewhat represent my solo travel experiences as they often aren't actually traveling alone and they travel in their own cars (instead of hitching/riding trains/biking/walking, etc.) However, I really liked the themes of [...]


  • lee lee

    I liked several of the essays in this book, but I agree with some of the other reviewers that may of these women are melodramatic. Over-analyzing is really only interesting to me when the writer knows she's overdoing it, and I really didn't see that in any of these writers. Perhaps being in the wilderness affects your writing style in this way! If I hadn't of had to finish this for my 52-books challenge, I certainly would've put it down a long time ago. Of course, that could also be due to the p [...]


  • Kati

    Best essay in the book: an account of a trek in Nepal. Worst essay in the book: a young woman who dumps her boyfriend and drives west to find herself and read into everything too much.Other stand-outs: the account of Iditasport in Alaska, and the woman who talked about losing the audience in her head during her first solo back-packing trip. Overall, a very good book. It's wedging the travel itch deeper within me.


  • Katie

    I haven't read this in years either, but I remember this little book of essays making me happy. It is about women in the wilderness, and makes me miss my mountains. One of the stories even takes place not far from where I grew up. I love memoirs and essays that explore a person's connection with a place -- this book combines both of those elements and thus was a delight for me to read.


  • Keli Wright

    I found this on my boss Julia's bookshelf so I read it It was some interesting stories about women doing stuff by themselves It was interesting but not very interesting like OK you are a feminist and you have gone against the norm and done something by yourself I am proud of you now moving on


  • Sandra Krajeski

    I've read this collection of essays cover to cover many times. Each time I experience it in a different way depending on where I am in my own life journey. first read it before the birth of my first child on my own solo trip and now years later the writers' stories speak to me on a completely different level. A book that grows with you.


  • Lindsey

    What a collection of stories of women on a myriad of solo adventures--hiking, camping, bodyboarding, flying, sailing, road tripping, and more. I'm inspired. I'm filled with love for strong women. I feel supported to be independent. Solo trip 2016, here I come!


  • Lisa

    This is a book of short stories written by women who go on their own solo adventure. The adventures differ: kayaking, hiking, backpacking, road-tripping, etc. Some stories were fantastic, some were so-so, and a slim few were not so interesting. Happy to be moving on to another book.


  • Maria

    This book holds a collection of amazing stories about Women. Each story is different from the next covering a wide meaning of the word: solo. I read this at a time when I needed encouragement and I found it in these women's words!


  • Danielle

    I love how each woman shows our connection to the natural world. Some essays I liked better than others but that was mostly relatability to her sport. A lot of truth in their words.


  • Susan

    Really great essays from women who "go it alone" in various adventure settings. Rich insights, strong reflections, beautiful imagery.


  • Cherie

    A- A terrific travel anthology about women who travel alone--very diverse locations and interesting


  • Deb Weina

    Great short stories of women going out on their own adventures to challenge themselves. AWESOME book!
