9780192802019: Unsuitable for Ladies: An Anthology of Women Travellers

Real ladies do not travel - or so it was once said. This collection of women's travel writing dispels the notion by showing how there are few corners of the world that have not been visited by women travellers. There are also few difficulties, physical or emotional, real or imagined, that have not been met and usually overcome by these
same women.
Jane Robinson's first book, Wayward Women, was a guide to women travellers and their writing, and having read over a thousand of their books she is uniquely qualified to compile this anthology. Life is never dull for her intrepid women, whether diving to the bed of the Timor Sea or reaching the summit of Annapurna. From an encounter with a snake in the Amazon jungle to shipwreck and kidnap on the Barbary Coast, there are tales of adventure, derring-do, and great danger. There are also moving accounts of unimaginable hardship, including
caring for a family in an ammunition cart during the siege of Delhi and a journey through Tibet that leaves its author childless and widowed.
There is no such thing as a typical woman traveller—and there never has been—as this exhilarating anthology shows on a journey of its own through sixteen centuries of travel writing, aboard almost anything from a Bugatti to a Bath chair. You are taken as far afield as it is possible to go, in the company of some of the most extraordinary characters you are ever likely to meet.

Recensione:

Review from previous edition 'this volume is fun to dip into ... recommended for travel collections for its breadth of coverage' Caroline Mitchell, Library Journal

L'autore:

Jane Robinson first began collecting books at the age of 7, when a local library banned her from using a jam tart as a bookmark. After graduating in English from Somerville College, Oxford, she joined a firm of antiquarian booksellers specializing in travel and exploration. She left bookselling to pursue a writing career and in 1990 her first book, Wayward Women, was published. She is now established as one of history's most intrepid women travellers - in an armchair. Her other books include Parrot Pie for Breakfast: an anthology of woman pioneers, and Angels of Albion, a collection of writings from women during the Indian mutiny. She lives in Oxford with her husband and two sons.
