Waymaking

An anthology of women’s adventure writing, poetry and art

ISBN: 978-1-910240-75-5  Edited by Helen Mort, Claire Carter, Heather Dawe and Camilla Barnard,

Waymaking is an anthology of prose, poetry and artwork by women who are inspired by wild places, adventure and landscape.

The artists in this inspired collection [are] redressing the balance of gender in outdoor adventure literature. Their creativity urges us to stop and engage our senses: the smell of rain-soaked heather, wind resonating through a col, the touch of cool rock against skin, and most importantly a taste of restoring mind, body and spirit to a former equanimity.
