Footprints on Snow


Seven Brave Women who SHAPED Northwest Mountains History

“For many people mountains are an inspiration; they certainly are for the amazing women that long time hiker, mountaineer, and author Joan Burton writes about in her new book. And, just as the mountains inspired them, these women are also inspiring whether they are making first ascents, working to protect wilderness, or providing the vision to create the Washington Trails Association and the Pacific Crest Trail. We are indeed fortunate for their work and for Joan Burton for reminding us of their stories.” David B. Williams, author of Homewaters

“Burton tells the stories of seven Northwest women who have braved social mores, political winds, and mountain summits to enjoy and preserve the wilderness experience. Her vignettes celebrate a century of women’s mountaineering for a young audience.” Judy Bentley, author of Hiking Washington’s History
