Gutsy Girls: Young Women Who Dare

Do you wonder what you're made of? Would you like to test yourself — really push yourself to the limit? Meet 25 girls and women who said YES to these questions and performed daring feats, like mountain climber Merrick Johnston, skydiver Christy Hauptman, surfer Veronica Kay, and many more.

In exciting, inspiring first-person stories, these women tell their stories of courage and determination. Then, a second section of the book teaches girls how to be gutsy themselves: how to get their minds and bodies in shape for a challenge, how to plan their path to adventure, and how to live an authentic, daring life.
