Synopsis: Wildlife ecologist Anne LaBastille is a pioneer in the growing movement of women into wilderness-oriented careers. In this groundbreaking book, she documents this phenomenon, profiling fifteen remarkable women ranging in age from twenty-one to seventy whose lives and professions center on the outdoors. Some are field scientists or hold technical jobs--a zoologist, a speleologist (cave explorer), a builder of log houses--others have forged unique, self-reliant lifestyles in wilderness homesteads. These women, LaBastille herself among them, constitute a new and important category of role models for young women.
LaBastille also looks at the complex web of social and psychosexual factors that have alienated women from wilderness in the past and shows how feminism and the rise of environmental consciousness have allowed the "wilderness within women" to emerge. Updated with a new Afterword for this edition, Women and Wilderness offers exciting career ideas and inspiration for women everywhere.

From the Inside Flap: ss, as a living and working environment, is still a frontier for women. But more and more women are moving outside the walls of home and office and into careers in the great outdoors -- along step psychologically and physically from traditional female roles.

In this groundbreaking book, wildlife ecologist Anne LaBastille profiles 15 adventurous and accomplished women whose lives and work center on the outdoors. They include:
-- Krissa Johnson, a young designer-builder of log homes
-- Margaret Murie, conservationist and lifetime partner of naturalist Olaus Murie
-- Carol Ruckdeschel, a freelance naturalist who guided then-governor Jimmy Carter down Georgia's wild Chattahoochee River
-- Nicole Duplaix, leader of the World Wildlife Fund's team monitoring the illegal endangered-species trade
-- Eugenie Clark, the famous "shark lady" of marine biology

LaBastille also examines the factors that have alienated women from wilderness in the past,
