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'm a hiker, backpacker, traveler, author, and publisher. After I started backpacking, I decided to find out about other women who backpacked. That led to "We're in the Mountains Not over the Hill: Tales and Tips from Seasoned Women Backpackers," which supports women exploring the rewards and challenges of the wilderness.

After hiking across Spain on the Camino de Santiago (2001), I decided to lear
