From the back cover:

"Here are the stories of Annie Smith Peck, the most famous woman mountaineer of her time, who climbed the highest peak in Peru when she was sixty; of Delia J. Akeley, the first woman to lead a museum expedition, who traveled across Africa collecting big-game specimens and lived with Pygmy tribes; of Marguerite Harrison, an American spy arrested and sent to the infamous Lubianka prison in Russia, who later filmed the pilgrimage of a nomadic Persian tribe; and of Louise Arner Boyd, who conceived, financed, and led seven scientific explorations to the icebound coast of Greenland."


"Danger, excitement, high risks, high rewards, elegant competence, and success against mighty odds -- a thriller that is even better because it is true." -- Sylvia Earle, author of Exploring the Deep Frontier


"Women of the Four Winds rescues from obscurity four remarkable American women, whose daring and courage are all the more extraordinary given the historical context of their times." -- James M. Beggs, NASA administrator
