I know for a fact that women hikers embrace passion, curiosity, and the chance to push their physical and mental limits every time they lace up their boots.
The challenge of having this many suggestions presented to you in one go is "Where do I start?"
There are lots of ways to let this simple book knock loose some of that festering wildness bottled up inside of you.

I've already got a few taped to my workspace to remind me of my wild side.
The author also provides enough "wild lists" to keep you adventuring in many ways over the next years.
Here are my favorite lists for hikers in this 1001 Ways To Live Wild review:
