Three dozen women, most over 45, tell their stories and wisdom learned on the trail. Chapters such as solo backpacking, backpacking with friends, llama packing, bear encounters as well as information about staying fit, safe, and healthy while hiking are included.
Readers will be inspired by the women of the book who believe "if we can do it [backpack], so can you!" Reaching a "seasoned" age is no reason to turn into a couch potato. Adventurous women who want to experience the rewards and challenges of the wilderness trail will find the support and information they need in "We're in the Mountains Not over the Hill."
