Description


Christine Woodside began her outdoors journey in her twenties, following friends and a boyfriend who came up with the idea. From that first trip, Chris grew into an avid outdoorswoman, thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail with her husband and two friends. By her mid-30s she began taking her daughters, who taught her about herself not only as outdoorswoman and mother but a woman in general. Another decade on, she decided she needed to explore alone for a while. The rough-hewn, grubby feminism that developed over the course of Chris's personal and professional time in these wild places changed her--and maybe her daughters--forever. Going Over the Mountain charts that course with insight and humor that any reader and outdoors lover can appreciate.
