If the exploring of foreign lands is not the highest end or the most useful occupation of feminine existence, it is at least more improving, as well as more amusing, than crochet work. - Mabel Sharman Crawford, 1863.

This marvellous collection brings to life the true stories of twenty women travellers. From Marian Ellis Rowan who travelled the colonial wilds dressed in the height of Victorian fashion, to Amy Johnson who flew solo from London to Darwin in 1930, these tales of hardship, adventure and romance will seduce and enthral.
