Testimonials

Pam LeBlanc is a remarkable and fearless adventurer. She is not afraid to ‘ride the tiger’. Her writings capture the spirit and essence of her varied exploits...and she demonstrates a deep sense of stewardship for Mother Earth."

- Dan Sholly, former chief ranger of Yellowstone National Park

To read any of Pam’s reports from the field is to be whisked alongside a down-to-earth yet formidable woman with a great adventurous spirit, for the ride of your life. Her storytelling and photographs will have you yearning for the great outdoors, a new journey into yourself…or perhaps a naked run with hundreds of your closest friends!"

Tanya Streeter- Tanya Streeter, record-setting free diver and environmentalist

Pam’s perspective of seeing the world brings out the light in people, places and situations. Not only is she creative, and original, with her lighthearted humor, she always finds a ways to put a smile on your face. I always look forward to seeing her work!"

- Leo Manzano, Olympic silver medalist in the 1500 meter run

I’ve never known someone so willing to jump — sometimes literally — into her work as Pam LeBlanc. She is a writer whose prose can take you places you’ve always wanted to go — or the places you wish you could go, but probably never will."
