Real ladies do not travel – or so it was once said. This new collection of women’s travel dispels that myth, with amusing and thrilling extracts which prove that there are few corners of the world not visited by lady travelers. Isabella Bird, Karen Blixen, Christina Dodwell, Jan Morris, Dervla Murphy, Freya Stark, and Rebecca West are among almost 200 authors in this new anthology of women’s travel writing.
