Get Lost: Seven Principles for Trekking Life with Grace and Other Life Lessons from Kick-Ass Women’s Adventure Travel


Grounded in Erin Leider-Pariser’s extraordinary career leading women’s adventure travel across seven continents, this guide to living life to the fullest shares real-life experiences of personal transformation powered by exploring the wilds of nature and the soul.

For nearly thirty years, Erin Leider-Pariser has designed women’s adventure journeys that empower them to push their physical boundaries, bond through ancient rituals, give back to the corners of the world they visit, and learn more about themselves than they ever imagined. Get Lost blends the wisdom and personal insights gleaned from these hiking, biking, and climbing trips through some of the world’s most breathtaking landscapes with once-in-a-lifetime tales of dramas in the wild. For Leider-Pariser and her travelers, life is never the same after surviving a flash flood on a remote Columbian trail, getting lost in a Cambodian jungle, receiving shamanic healings in Ecuador, beholding the world from a Himalayan peak, and bonding with friends old and new through an ancient talking stick ceremony around the campfire. Through stories and anecdotes, the reader will witness how women’s travel is soulful, flipped-out, hysterical fun—an absolute necessity for travel and everyday life.
