Abstract

The Walking is a book-length memoir manuscript that explores internalized misogyny, healing, and, of course, walking. In it, I write about the nearly 10,000 miles I’ve traveled on foot in the last decade, including thru-hikes of the Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail, and Appalachian Trail. Against these backdrops, I explore what it means to be a woman in a hypermasculine space, including questions of healing, adventure, competition, and consent.
