by Isabella L. Bird. Softcover, 256 pages, 5-3/8" x 8-1/2". The author remains a woman before her time and one of the most adventerous travel writers of the 19th century. She recounts her journeys through Canada and pre-Civil War United States in this travelouge. Drawing from letters to her sister back home in England, Bird passionately details such sights as wigwams on Prince Edward Island and the romantic falls of Lorette in Quebec, plus dark encounters with cholera, slavery, and harrowing storms at sea. A reprint of the 1856 The English Woman In America.
