How Princess of Wales' loyal PA and stylist Natasha Archer who's been on hand during her hospital stay has. Pink Boots and a Machete is an empowering autobiography detailing how one humble, tree-climbing, bug-collecting tomboy evolved into one of the most recognizable primatologists and television adventurers on the planet. The author had some observations about having been a Pro-sports cheerleader, some complaints about criticism of her being female and beautiful which I found to be a useless case of a bit too thin skinned. As a reader, to hear Mayor's story, you've got to be prepared to machete your way through some pretty bad writing and a lot of reminders that yes, Mireya Mayor used to be an NFL cheerleader for the Miami Dolphins.

I was surprised to find that the book really isn't about her metaphorical 'journey' from cheerleader to National Geographic explorer. Inside the Giggs family feud: Ryan tore his bloodline apart with his affair with brother Rhodri's wife. In an age of tell-alls and TMZ, Mayor shows remarkable restraint in what she chooses to reveal about her personal life. The turn of the century saw a bigger emphasis on the dance element of cheerleading, and the outfits became tighter and more revealing to reflect that. This reminds me of a story that Sandi Toksvig once told: Years ago, when I was studying anthropology at university, one of my female professors held up a photograph of an antler bone with 28 markings on it.Her red lipstick matches her ensemble, and her hair is styled in a voluminous pouf on top of her head. There's a nice balance of stories which make this a book to appeal to a wide range of people -- from teens looking for an inspirational leader to adventure readers to armchair travelers who vicariously enjoy extreme exploits from the comfort of home. It begins with stories from her childhood, progresses to her days as a cheerleader with the Miami Dolphins, -Oh, don't worry! We get it already, after the beginning of the book and the first mentions of the issues, but certain things (film crews wanting women to bathe in waterfalls) were mentioned a minimum of two times in the book; struggles with having been a Dolphins cheerleader in her past happened at least a minimum of once every chapter if not more frequently, and often distracted me and annoyed me from the reading.

I believe that there is a strong underlying message in the book: we can all be explorers and make our own discoveries about our world and about ourselves. Products that contain small parts may pose a choking hazard and should not be used by children under 3. On the other hand -- she does a terrific job of keeping things light, imparting information without sounding too lecture-y, and being willing to laugh at herself. In 2005, Mireya received two Emmy Award nominations for her work on the television series “Ultimate Explorer”.We take intellectual property concerns very seriously, but many of these problems can be resolved directly by the parties involved. VERDICT The prose is uneven throughout, but as a whole this collection fills an important gap; it ought to inspire young people, especially young women, to follow in Mayor's footsteps. A poor condition book can still make a good reading copy but is generally not collectible unless the item is very scarce.
