Thrill Seekers: 15 Remarkable Women in Extreme Sports

What is the allure of the extreme? Who are the women who seek out and excel at sports outside the conventional, such as cave diving, wingsuit flying, or Formula 1 racing? This collection of female adventure dynamos is as fascinating as it is empowering.

Thrill Seekers introduces readers to a diverse and fascinating selection of women whose determination, grit, and courage have propelled each of them into a life far from the sidelines. Each chapter introduces readers to modern role models and leaders, change-makers who opt into a life of risk — but one of astonishing rewards. This book, first in the Women of Power series, is packed with stories that will inspire young people to approach life with the same bold resolve as the women it profiles.

Description

"Each of the book’s five sections focuses on a particular type of sport and contains three profiles of female athletes that generally begin with anecdotal accounts of some pivotal moment in the athlete’s career, pan back to cover her early life and the accrual of successes, and end on a positive note promising further adventures to come.... Staats includes pursuits readers may be unfamiliar with or less accustomed to seeing women participate in, such as wingsuit flying, parkour, and cold-water diving." — Kirkus Reviews
