Combines archive material from a book of the same name first published in 1889 with anecdotes from well-known modern female travelers to offer a fascinating insight into the way that travel has changed for women over the last century From reminders to take your own bath with you to tips on how to hail a cab, today's intrepid female explorer has much to learn from her 19th century forebears. Brimming with practical advice and period detail, this travel compendium also includes material from famous explorers such as Gertrude Bell, an archaeologist and mountaineer who drew the boundaries of the country that became Iraq, and Isabella Bird Bishop, the first woman to be inducted into the Royal Geographical Society. Quirky, engaging, and informative, it will appeal both to travelers themselves and to anyone interested in the history of travel and exploration.
