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 that notion by showing how there are few corners of the world that have not been visited by women travelers. There are also few difficulties, physical or emotional, real or imagined, that have not been met and overcome by these women. Life is never dull for Jane Robinson's intrepid women. From an encounter with a snake in the Amazon jungle to shipwreck and kidnap on the Barbary Coast, this book includes tales of derring-do and great danger. It also tells tales 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 traveler-and there never has been-as this exhilarating anthology shows on a journey of its own through sixteen centuries of travel writing. So get ready for adventure and excitement with some of the most extraordinary characters you are ever likely to meet

From the Back Cover:

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 travellers.

Jane Robinson was born in Edinburgh and brought up in North Yorkshire. After graduating from Oxford, she joined a firm of antiquarian book dealers specializing in travel, later leaving to pursue a writing career.

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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. Codice libro della libreria AOP9780192802019
