Wayward Women: A Guide to Women Travellers

Robinson, Jane Author

Image Not Available

Whether medieval missionaries or modern mountaineers, butterfly-catchers or courtesans, the woman travellers represented in this delightful collection share one thing in common: they all wrote books of their own. Robinson here presents some three hundred and fifty woman travellers, mostly British or American, and examines the almost one thousand books they produced among them. Spanning sixteen centuries, she reveals a fascinating body of literature, full of insight, wit, and courage.
