How safe are our national parks, especially for women hikers?
Not safe enough, says Kathryn Miles. We talk with her about her book Trailed: One Womanâ€™s Quest to Solve the Shenandoah Murders. Itâ€™s about the murders of two remarkable women in 1996, a botched investigation and the failure by the National Park Service to take the safety of women hikers seriously.
Then, as 2022 is slated to experience a severe hurricane season, we revisit our 2015 conversation with Kathryn Miles about her book about Hurricane Sandy, Superstorm.

In May 1996, two skilled backcountry leaders, Lollie Winans and Julie Williams, entered Virginiaâ€™s Shenandoah National Park for a week-long backcountry camping trip. After the pair didnâ€™t return home as planned, park rangers found their tent slashed open, their beloved dog missing, and both women dead in their sleeping bags.
When journalist and author Kathryn Miles began looking into the case, she found conflicting evidence, mismatched timelines, and details that didnâ€™t add up.
An innocent man, Miles is convinced, has been under suspicion for decades, while the true culprit is a known serial killer Miles says authorities should investigate.
But Trailed is more than a gripping true crime story. Itâ€™s a plea to make wilderness a safer space for women and to change the cultural narratives that put them at risk.
Kathryn Miles is the author of, among other books, Quakeland and Superstorm.
Scientists say that climate change is driving the giant storms that are ever more frequently battering the East and Gulf Coasts of the US.
Itâ€™s been ten years since one of them hit: Superstorm Sandy. It was the deadliest, most destructive, and strongest hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season.
Kathryn Miles wrote the first complete account of what happened during the nine days of Sandyâ€™s life, Superstorm. I spoke with her about the book in 2015.
