The Illustrated Virago Book of Women Travellers

Author(s): Mary Morris (ed) with Larry O'Connor

Travel

This bestselling anthology of travel writing is now beautifully enhanced with photographs in a new illustrated edition. Three hundred years of wanderlust are captured here by women who travelled for peril or for pleasure. Some of the contributors were observers of the countries in which they travelled, others were more active participants in the cultures they visited, but they are all storytellers weaving tales about the people and places they encountered.

Featuring writings by Isabella Bird, Willa Cather, Edith Wharton, Dervla Murphy and many more, the Illustrated Virago Book of Women Travellers is a literary delight, a visual pleasure and the ultimate armchair travelling companion.
