Living with cannibals and other women's adventures by Michele B Slung( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspiring, sometimes tragic, often humorous tales of adventurous women from the 18th century to the 21st century. Selected from National Geographic's archives, this colorful group portrait pairs female adventurers of the past with their contemporary counterparts in a "then and now" approach. You'll meet Arctic explorers and aviators, women who defied Victorian convention to venture alone among the headhunters of Borneo or to see firsthand the hidden corners of Africa, India, and Japan, and record-breaking moments by latter-day legends. Whether kayaking remote Tibetan rivers or bottle-feeding baby orangutans, bicycling to India or battling icebergs off the coast of Greenland, each woman profiled here demonstrates her unswerving devotion to a dream.--From publisher description

Slow hand : women writing erotica by Michele B Slung( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slow Hand: Women Writing Erotica is an anthology of stories in which women artfully explore their own erotic terrain. To create this newest of her popular anthologies, Michele Slung challenged women--straight and gay, old and young, journalists, poets, academics, women whose job descriptions range from "anthropologist" to "performance artist," as well as professional novelists and short story writers--to turn her on. And from across the United States, Canada, and Great Britain, a variety of daring and talented women, hearing that she was putting together a book to reflect their most intimate sexual selves, enthusiastically responded. Michele Slung has collected the best of these pieces in Slow Hand, offering page after page of tantalizing sensual adventure for our reading--and feeling--pleasure. But whether the stories stay as close to home as a familiar partner's embrace or whether they move into the darker recesses of extraordinary desires and even more extraordinary experiences, the special quality shared by these tales is their ability to seduce us. So while the mood of this collection is indeed slow (in all the right ways), it's certain that your pulse will quicken
