The Word for Woman is Wilderness

by Abi Andrews
£8.99   paperback  Profile Books Ltd (Serpent's Tail) (2019)

The Word for Woman is Wilderness by Abi Andrews Funny, frank and tender, The Word for Woman is Wilderness is an adventure novel with a difference.
 
Erin is 19. She's never really left England, but she has watched Bear Grylls and wonders why it's always men who get to go on all the cool wilderness adventures. So Erin sets off on a voyage into the Alaskan wilderness, a one-woman challenge to the archetype of the rugged male explorer.
 
As Erin's journey takes her through the Arctic Circle, across the entire breadth of the American continent and finally to a lonely cabin in the wilds of Denali, she explores subjects as diverse as the moon landings, the Gaia hypothesis, loneliness, nuclear war, shamanism and the pill.
 
Filled with a sense of wonder for the natural world and a fierce love for preserving it, The Word for Woman is Wilderness is a funny, frank and tender account of a young woman in uncharted territory.
