Living Dangerously: Women Who Risked Their Lives for AdventureAmerican Women Who Risked Their Lives for Adventure
Six adventurous and inspiring stories of American women who defied social convention, prejudice, fear, and even disabilities to undertake dangerous missions.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: Living Dangerously
Rappaport casts her fishing net over the vast and teeming waters of the 20th century and plucks out six American women who have little in common except grit. In a "you are there" reportorial style, she spotlights days in the lives of thrill seekers and explorers. But her book is dedicated to the woman whose story fills the final pages: Thecla Mitchell, who overcomes a physical handicap to run the New York City marathon.
