Excellent accounts of older women who remain active, enjoying backpacking & hiking. I enjoyed reading their different approaches to camping, hiking, backpacking as well as their philosophies. I envy the woman who hikes with llamas therefore lessening her burden, allowing more hiking miles with more amenities!! Although the book didn't touch on "how to" suggestions it was a very good read.

I have been on a Sierra reading adventure. I went to see Susan speak at the Mountain Springs Golf Course when she was brought to Tuolumne County by Omega Nu. Being a member of my own women's backpacking group, WWW, I needed to hear others' stories.

I found great inspiration in this book that I picked up at a used bookstore. Having hiked but not backpacked, I now think think I'm ready to backpack!

I'm a hiker, backpacker, traveler, author, and publisher. After I started backpacking, I decided to find out about other women who backpacked.
