The twelve women in this book went beyond what was expected of them. They didnt say I cant do that. Im a girl. They did it, even if it was unacceptable for a lady of those times. From the famous aviator Amelia Earhart to the relentless photojournalist Margaret Bourke-White, these adventurers will dare you to follow your dreams. Also included are Gudridur Thorbjarnarsdottir (Viking Traveler), Susan Butcher (Dog Sled Racer), Kit DesLauriers (Skier), Valentina Tereshkova (Astronaut), Bessie Coleman (Pilot), Janet Guthrie (Racecar Driver), Sophie Blanchard (Balloonist), Nellie Bly (Journalist), Gertrude Ederle (English Channel Swimmer), and Dr. Diana Hoff (Atlantic Ocean Rower). They are not just amazing women, they are remarkable human beings!
