The Book

Ever wondered how to cook a locust or sweet-talk a cannibal? Welcome to the captivating world of female explorers – women just as inspiring, brave, and occasionally downright strange as all the Shackletons, Mallorys, and Livingstones.


Discover who dressed up as a Tibetan peasant to explore Asia and why you shouldn’t let a gorilla near your bedroom. Learn how to spot a good camel and who carried two holsters on her horse: one for a loaded revolver and one for tea-making equipment.


Pairing intrepid stories of yesteryear with hilarious retro tips from history’s greatest female adventurers, How to Climb Mont Blanc in a Skirt is perfect for both seasoned explorers and office workers dreaming of that next big trip abroad.
