Smart and Savvy Hiking: What Every Woman Needs to Know on the Trail
Smart and Savvy Hiking: What Every Woman Needs to Know on the Trail 
    Yes, the world really does need another hiking book—especially Smart & Savvy Hiking: What Every Woman Needs to Know on the Trail. As a young girl growing up in the Colorado mountains, then a hip outdoors writer, and now the mother of three small children, author Kim Lipker has personally faced every question women ask on the trail. Her “girl talk” covers such topics as comfortable and protective fabrics and clothing—all the way down to bras, panties, and socks; on-the-trail toilette; pregnancy hiking; bringing kids along; choosing companions wisely; avoiding violence; and overcoming the fear of getting lost.

    She extends the five senses to seven and shows how to use them to truly experience nature. A special section, “Journaling the Journey,” offers written exercises that turn hiking into personal transformation. And the book’s “Smart & Savvy Life List” showcases vacation-destination trails. Most of the book is geared to day hikes, but “After Sundown” provides great detail for overnight backpacking. Altogether, inside these pages lies a whole new world of safety, pleasure, and reward for novice and seasoned hikers alike. (Men will pick up some tips, too.)
