Jacki Hill-Murphy, FRGS, is a writer and speaker who has travelled to some of the most inhospitable places on earth to re-create the journeys of daring female adventurers from the past.
In tracking valiant women who left inhibition at home and journeyed into the unknown, Jacki pays tribute to their invincible spirits and achievements. She has followed in the footsteps of Victorian explorers Isabella Bird (who travelled across the Digar-La in Ladakh, India); Mary Kingsley (who pioneered the route to the 13,255 summit of Mount Cam-eroon); and Kate Marsden (who trudged from Moscow to Siberia in search of a cure for leprosy).
Jacki also replicated the 1769 expedition of Isabel Godin, the only survivor of a 42-person, 3,000-mile expedition along the Amazon River.
