    Meet ten inspiring women whose passions for exploration made them push the boundaries

    Though most people have heard of explorers like Henry Hudson and Christopher Columbus, few have heard names like Nellie Cashman and Annie Smith Peck. Unfortunately, most of the brave women explorers have never made it into history books because they lived in times when it was taboo for women to go off on their own. Luckily, the daring women in this book didn't let those taboos slow them down as they climbed treacherous mountains, studied Aboriginal cultures, and lived with Pygmy tribes!

    With engaging text and bold illustrations, Women Explorers will finally properly introduce these adventurous women to the world.
