We’re Sarah and Meg. And like you, we struggled with fears of freezing, getting lost, and pooping in the wild.

But over the years, we found that we could be happy, warm, well-fed, and cozy in the backcountry. And we want to help you find the same freedom!

“Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.” – Terry Tempest Williams

What makes EBOOK so different?

We wrote this book after seeing way too many blog posts like, “17 Tips for the Beginning Female Hiker” (barf). It bums us out when outdoor “experts” talk down to women. So we set out to create a book that’s warm, funny, honest and doesn’t take itself so ef-fing seriously.
