Detailed Product Description
UK, 2011, 1st UK edition. 244 pp, many illustrations. Pictorial hardcover. This book was issued both with and without a dust jacket. We have both versions. Fine. 

This is the story of female adventurers, mostly in the Victorian era of the 1800s and early 1900s. The stories are wonderful, and Conefrey lightens them up with humor, as there is much about the rules for lady adventurers that we find absurd and hopefully laughable today. Some may see all the absurdity of wearing a skirt on a glacier and feel a pain of anger.

Although this book is a decade old, we only received our first copy in the Fall of 2021. Our supply is limited, and as this may not have been imported into the USA, it will be a challenge to keep them in stock. 

If this book had been researched later, Conefrey undoubtedly would have included Teresa and St George Littledale. The Littledales were English explorers of Central Asia in the early 1900s whose biography was only recently published.
