Award-winning historian, Tiya Miles unveils how outdoor experiences shaped women who changed the face of America. Harriet Tubman used the land as a blueprint for freedom, Louisa May Alcott forged her own path, and the Indigenous girls of Fort Shaw, Montana demonstrated pride in their power. Wild Girls pays homage to misunderstood icons like Sacagawea & Pocahontas, as well as Dolores Huerta, Grace Lee Boggs & Zitkála-Šá. This poetic history champions equal access for young women of all backgrounds and portrays the outdoor pursuits that gave these pioneers joy, resourcefulness, and the courage to resist racism & sexism.
