  2. I wholeheartedly recommend The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins if you haven’t already read them! They’ve got a strong young woman, and wilderness survival! 🙂

  3. Cold Mountain covers most of those bases if you haven’t read that yet…
    Nate really liked The Maine Woods by Henry Thoreau
    Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley is a really fun memoir- super witty and adventurous
    Til We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis is a really intense and moving sort of “fantasy” novel with women leading characters…it’s more mythological than fantastic, though.

  4. one woot for just kids,
    and another for rebecca artemisa!

    my recommendation is wildwood.
    it IS a kids book-with illustrations and all
    but i would think you’re not one to snub
    a thing like that. i have it if you’d like to borrow!

  5. Oh, yes! Charles de Lint is an excellent fantasy author. Trader, by him, is a particular favorite. Also, of course, Tolkien, with his the Lord of the Rings.

    I just finished Jane Eyre and liked it quite a lot. She’s strong, in a way. There’s also In the Spirit of Crazy Horse, which is about Leonard Peltier and the American Indian Movement if you want a biography-esque book.

    Happy reading!

  6. if you haven’t, i highly suggest all from francesca lia block. j’adore! winter’s bone is good, as well. there are many fun biographies out there these days. i am often pleasantly surprised with what i find once i go digging through the library shelves. you might have a read through Mayflower (though it’s huge) as it covers so much info, lots of details on real people lost to history and is a fascinating adventure!

  7. I sometimes like to read books that are later made into movies so these two suggestions fall into that category.
    Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer- this one is based off a true adventurer!
    and
    House of the Spirits by Isable Allende – strong women/ good imagery / bits of magical realism
    -hope you enjoy these if you end up reading them-ellery

  8. I really reccommend Ariel Gore’s memoir – I think it’s called ‘Atlas of the human heart’ or something like that. Also, Michelle Tea is a fabulous, feminist, working-class writer. Also any non-fiction by Anne Lamott.

  9. The Orchard: A Memoir by Adele Crockett Robertson. You will love this book.

  10. The Legacy of Luna by Julia Butterfly Hill is an inspiring biography by a very strong woman, surviving in the wilderness (living in a tree for 738 days without touching the ground)! Bam!

    You might like it 🙂

    I’m part way through it at the moment.

  11. Hello, I recommend Journey by Moonlight and The Seller of Pasts. I wrote a review about both books to my blog, just type the name to the Search box and you will find the reviews. Boths books are really good, but also quite different :).
