Book Recommendation: No Boundaries

Facebooktwitterlinkedin

My friend Gabby Salazar is a photographer and former president of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA), among many other accomplishments.

Gabby recently co-authored a book called No Boundaries: 25 Women Explorers and Scientists Share Adventures, Inspiration, and Advice, available in both hardcover and Kindle editions. The book is aimed at girls in the 10 to 14 age range but will surely appeal to a wider audience.

You can learn more about this great book that I highly recommend here:
