Women have gone on amazing adventures since our earlier ancestors began to walk – from Africa to ancient Mesopotamia, across the Bering Strait to North and South America, in rafts and boats from Asia to Australia. Along the way, they have solved problems and slept under stars. They have hunted, gathered and used the night sky as a map to guide them around the world. This book highlights the stories of women the history books forgot about.
