"Ann McCallum Staats has written a much-needed book. In a world dominated by ball and goal sports, Thrill Seekers: 15 Remarkable Women in Extreme Sports takes a deep dive into sports such as slackline walking, cave diving, and dog sled racing. Staats also tells the stories of the fascinating women who have the courage to push themselves further than they ever thought possible. Thrill Seekers is a reading rush." --Fred Bowen, author and Washington Post KidsPost columnist

"This newest book by Ann celebrates women today as you can see from the title. They are making history right now! I was amazed and constantly in awe as I read through Ann's stories of each of these women. I've ordered a copy for myself so I can pass it on to my granddaughters who are both athletic and will love reading of girls who've grown to women as they achieve in sports what few others have done." --Linda, Goodreads
"The unique journeys and achievements of women athletes who push the limits of their bodies and minds are outlined in individual substantial chapters." --Booklist
"An engaging, energetic, and unabashedly woman-centric adventure." --Kirkus Reviews
