Women Who Dared: 52 Stories of Fearless Daredevils, Adventurers, and Rebels (Hardcover)
Women have been doing amazing, daring, and dangerous things for years, but they're rarely mentioned in our history books as adventurers, daredevils, or rebels. This new compilation of brief biographies features women throughout history who have risked their lives for adventure--many of whom you may not know, but all of whom you'll WANT to know, such as:
- Annie Edson Taylor, the first person who dared to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel
- Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman who dared to fly in space
- Helen Gibson, the first woman who dared to be a professional stunt person
- And many more
This is the perfect read for anyone who wants to know what it means to explore, discover, play, climb, and fight like a girl
