'The nineteenth century saw the expansion in popularity of travel among the wealthy. Add to this the independence more women were enjoying as they were released from work in the home, and we have the recipe for some intrepid female travelers. Here we see the stories of just some such adventurous women.' (Lynne Thompson)
