Gabby Salazar ’09 and Clare Fieseler, both National Geographic Explorers, co-authored No Boundaries: 25 Women Explorers and Scientists Share Adventures, Inspiration, and Advice (National Geographic Kids), published in February. Targeted for 9- to 12-year-olds, the book profiles a diverse group of women of different nationalities who are making their mark on the world—whether in fields such as paleontology, astronomy, volcanology, marine biology, and glaciology or pursuits like mountaineering, long-distance hiking, and leading expeditions. “The women on these pages aren’t from another century,” the authors wrote in the book’s introduction. “They are on the front lines of science and exploration today.” Salazar, who concentrated in science and technology studies at Brown, is a nature and conservation photographer and a social scientist; she’s currently a doctoral student at the University of Florida School of Forest, Fisheries, and Geomatics Sciences. “Ultimately,” the authors wrote, “we created this book because it’s a book we wish we had when we were growing up.”
