Kris Millgate has covered outdoor news nationwide for more than two decades. In that time, she's earned credibility, trust and praise, but her most significant achievement is finding her place among men.
My Place Among Men explores the reality of a woman working in a man’s world. Each chapter examines an actual news story Kris covered while also revealing the humorous and awkward interaction between genders on assignment.
In her memoir, Millgate offers an authoritative and balanced look at history-making environmental stories while lending emotional insight into an industry dominated by men in a time when the shift toward outdoor exploration for all is catching fire. My Place Among Men is the story of how one young woman, brought up in the schoolhouse of the wild, becomes an ultimate force to be reckoned with―a mother, a wife, a journalist whose work leads her to the ultimate discovery: finding her place among men is truly about finding her place in the wild.
