You're Doing What?: Older Women's Tales of Achievement & Adventure
featuring Marjorie Penn Lasky, Susan Lundgren, Rita Delgado, and others
Read about daring older women like the mermaid sex goddess, monofin intact, gliding in the Caribbean, or the early first-time bride finding her future husband on Craigslist. Women of different races, classes, and sexual orientations share their challenges and choices.
Tales of creative, daring older women have existed for generations. An ancient Athabascan legend tells of two elderly women abandoned by their migrating tribe. Overcoming the terrors of starvation and death, the women survived by depending upon their learned but previously unused skills in hunting, fishing, and shelter-building.
