Eugene Author Writes Outdoor Adventure Book For Girls


As humans put some distance between themselves and nature, men claimed the role of the "outdoorsy" people.  Eugene writer Ruby McConnell made a move to reclaim that space with a book called A Woman's Guide to the Wild

And she continues down that trail with a book aimed at females in the 9-12 age group, with A Girl's Guide to the Wild, out this year. 

It's got the expected features: safety and orientation in the woods, for example, but also things like science experiments to conduct outdoors.  The author visits with highlights.
