Summary

Summary

This unique, fascinating book features two centuries of travel from the journals, letters, and autobiographies of thirty-seven intrepid Irish women, among them Anna Jane Thornson, who posed as a sailor to get to New York, Daisy Bates, who lived with the Australian aborigines, and Eleanor K. Cavanagh, a ladies' maid behind the scenes in Russian court life. Writers from this century include Kate O'Brien, Dervla Murphy, Mary Russell and Rosita Boland.
