"Empowering and entertaining"--Seattle Times

"Girls seeking to spend time outdoors will find information, inspiration, and planning tips in this guide." --Kirkus Reviews

"Its useful information fills a critical and largely unoccupied niche in outdoors literature... the mere fact that this book exists is cause for celebration"--Foreword Magazine

"A dominant theme accompanying the accessible advice is gentle admonitions to make sure that everyone is having a good time: be sure that activities are accessible to all and that everyone is included, follow the rules and take care of one another, and, of course, always be prepared. Both kid and adult outdoors-women will appreciate the practical and thoughtful advice and should feel ready to tackle new adventures."--Booklist

"This book is a must have for a young adventurer or future young adventurer in your life." --Eugene Weekly

"With basic outdoor skills, camp recipes, outdoor projects, and inspiring stories, this guide improves the quality of girls' outdoor time by helping them feel comfortable with skills and knowledge." --She Explores
