Description

Women's experiences by kayak, sail, swim & sea have a flavor all their own, marked by both external and internal adventure. The Women on the Water titles run the gamut from riveting thriller to quiet introspection, as varied as the water and the women who wrote them. Let these women inspire you to get out on the water - or simply enjoy armchair travels from Alaska's Inside Passage to the English Channel.
