She Explores by Gale Straub
Combining breathtaking travel photography with compelling personal narratives, She Explores shares the stories of women on unforgettable journeys – women who live out of vans, trucks, and vintage trailers, exploring wild landscapes, cooking meals over campfires, and sleeping under the stars.
Here are the stories of a mother raising her children on the road and crafting her own version of the 'American dream,' a firefighter discovering her true grit on the fire line, a young marathoner on a quest to become an Olympian, and a musical duo hiking with their instruments to perform concerts deep in the wilderness. Complementing the personal narratives are practical how-tos with advice for planning your own adventure, including tips for preparing for a solo hike, must-haves for a road-trip kitchen, and where to sleep on a road trip.
Beautiful, empowering, and exhilarating, She Explores is a celebration of female courage, self-reliance, and self-discovery, and a spirited invitation to explore the world on your own terms.
