            She couldn't have been more than seven or eight years old. Go ahead, ask your question, her father urged, nudging her forward. She smiled shyly and said, You're my hero. Who's yours? Many people-especially girls-have asked us that same question over the years. It's one of our fav...orite topics. HILLARY: Growing up, I knew hardly any women who worked outside the home. So I looked to my mother, my teachers, and the pages of Life magazine for inspiration. After learning that Amelia Earhart kept a scrapbook with newspaper articles about successful women in male-dominated jobs, I started a scrapbook of my own. Long after I stopped clipping articles, I continued to seek out stories of women who seemed to be redefining what was possible. CHELSEA: This book is the continuation of a conversation the two of us have been having since I was little. For me, too, my mom was a hero; so were my grandmothers. My early teachers were also women. But I grew up in a world very different from theirs. My pediatrician was a woman, and so was the first mayor of Little Rock who I remember from my childhood. Most of my close friends' moms worked outside the home as nurses, doctors, teachers, professors, and in business. And women were going into space and breaking records here on Earth. Ensuring the rights and opportunities of women and girls remains a big piece of the unfinished business of the twenty-first century. While there's a lot of work to do, we know that throughout history and around the globe women have overcome the toughest resistance imaginable to win victories that have made progress possible for all of us. That is the achievement of each of the women in this book. So how did they do it? The answers are as unique as the women themselves. Civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, and swimmer Diana Nyad kept pushing forward, no matter what. Writers like Rachel Carson and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie named something no one had dared talk about before. Historia

            Why were the Wild Boars in Tham Luang in the first place? I know, because I share their passion- to explore the wild, secret places of the world, and to revel in adventure. When Rick Stanton searched through mud and floodwater in the Tham Luang caves in 2018, finding the twelve m...issing boys and their football coach alive was more than anyone dared hope. In a rescue mission that held the entire world in its thrall, Rick and his team successfully brought all thirteen to safety. A former firefighter and cave-diver since his college years, Rick has never shied from danger, exploring where few dare venture and rescuing people from unimaginable peril. Aquanaut reveals what it takes to become capable of such extraordinary acts of bravery and skill in the most hostile, remote environments on earth. What it's like to explore the world that exists beneath our feet. And how it feels, when a person is trapped miles underground, cut off from food, air and contact with the outside, to know that you are one of the few people in the world with the skills to bring them to safety.
