Women growing older contend with ageism, misogyny, and loss. Yet as Mary Pipher shows, most older women are deeply happy and filled with gratitude for the gifts of life. Their struggles help them grow into the authentic, empathetic, and wise people they have always wanted to be.
In Women Rowing North, Pipher offers a timely examination of the cultural and developmental issues women face as they age. Drawing on her own experience as daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, caregiver, clinical psychologist, and cultural anthropologist, she explores ways women can cultivate resilient responses to the challenges they face. “If we can keep our wits about us, think clearly, and manage our emotions skillfully,” Pipher writes, “we will experience a joyous time of our lives. If we have planned carefully and packed properly, if we have good maps and guides, the journey can be transcendent.”

60% OFF Bargain Books! This is a bargain book. Bargain books are excess inventory directly from various publishers. These books are new and in good reading condition and will, in most cases, have a small dot or line on the edge of the book to signify it is a discounted title. In addition, since bargain books are excess inventory from publishers, there may be price stickers or very minor wear, tear or bends to the book and this can be expected since some items may have been handled a few times. However, the majority of bargain books are in good reading condition.
