Wild Girls

Availability: In stock

This beautiful, meditative work of history puts girls of all races―and the landscapes they loved―at center stage and reveals the impact of the outdoors on women’s independence, resourcefulness, and vision. For these trailblazing women of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, navigating the woods, following the stars, playing sports, and taking to the streets in peaceful protest were not only joyful pursuits, but also techniques to resist assimilation, racism, and sexism. Lyrically written and full of archival discoveries, Wild Girls evokes landscapes as richly as the girls who roamed in them―and argues for equal access to outdoor spaces for young women of every race and class today.
