Detailed Product Description
Chicago, 1982, 2nd US edition. 182 pp, b/w photos, index. Green cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.
 
''Here are the amazing adventures of seven of these intrepid 19th-century ladies who made solo forays to such far corners of the earth as Japan, China, Siberia, Tibet, Africa, and the Himalayas at a time when their fainter sisters were just beginning to worry about the vote: Isabella Bird, Marianne North (a botanist who painted in Brazil), Fanny Bullock Workman, May French Sheldon, Annie Taylor and Kate Marsden, and Mary Kingsley. We may smile at their eccentricities but faced with their determination and sheer guts, one's final reaction is awe.''
