4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading ....
If - unlike the previous reviewer - you ignore the inevitable Kindle editorial errors, this is a book worth reading. It is fascinating that - as the author points out - there are so many women pioniers and explorers, who have all but disappeared in the the annals of time, whereas their male counterparts are still highly lorded and very nearly household names...

2.0 out of 5 stars Could do better
I was really quite looking forward to reading this, but I find it very badly written and very poorly edited, e.g. when talking about American and Norwegian explorers, there's an illustration of rucksacks with US and GERMAN flags on them; tigers in South America (really?); llama spelled 'lama'......

If - unlike the previous reviewer - you ignore the inevitable Kindle editorial errors, this is a book worth reading. It is fascinating that - as the author points out - there are so many women pioniers and explorers, who have all but disappeared in the the annals of time, whereas their male counterparts are still highly lorded and very nearly household names.

It once again shows that for women to be thought as highly of as men, they have to perform ten times as well - and even then it's may not be enough!

Anyway, all of that aside, the contents of this book are interesting and I am now intriged to find out more about some of the bold and adventurous women written about in these pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, 31 Dec 2011
I've only "dipped" into this book. The title intrigued me.
We shall see . . . . . . .
Looks good on the coffee table - sure to invite conversation.
