Little, Donna E.
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, v2 n1 p55-69 2002
A study exploring how women interpret adventure interviewed 42 women aged 30-86 from 6 countries who had participated in adventure recreation. Adventure for these women incorporated risk and physical challenge, but also a sense of newness, learning, personal development, and creativity. Implications for the adventure industry are discussed.
