Review
Girls seeking to spend time outdoors will find information, inspiration, and planning tips in this guide. Part 1, “So, You Want To Go Outside,” begins with the big picture. A chapter on “Places Near and Far” lists national parks, natural wonders, and World Heritage Sites that might inspire long-term trip planning. Chapter 2 encourages readers to find group opportunities, with a list of useful organizations, and Chapter 3 describes various outdoor sports and activities. Part 2, “The Basics,” contains packing lists for day and overnight trips, instructions for setting up a comfortable campsite, recipes for snacks and camp meals, and “Girl Stuff” such as body care in the wild. Part 3 covers “Advanced Skills” like recognizing weather clues, map reading, safety, and nature observation. Throughout the book are instructions for related activities as well as profiles of women who pioneered various outdoor skills, with clean, full-page black-and-white illustrations. Girls new to the outdoors may find the deluge of information a bit overwhelming; with its simple layout, this isn’t the book to draw in girls who aren’t already interested in the topic. This guide is most useful as a reference book for girls who have access to the outdoors and some basic experience and want to take on more responsibility. A useful list of resources—websites and books—follows the text. Quite handy for the right girl. (index) (Nonfiction. 9-14) (Kirkus Reviews, February 15, 2019)
