Editorial Reviews

Review

"Graham found the idea of your book very amusing" (Barbara Greene Strachwitz to the author about her cousin, 13/1/1988)". "This is a great read. And it brings to light much interesting knowledge about a so far little explored area of travel literaure." ( Anka Ryall, University of York). "A delightful, humorous and revealing account of the pleasures and perils of travelling together." (Caroline Moorehead).

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Hoe attempts a feminist analysis by comparing the writing of women and men accompanying each other on travels to intrepid places before 1950. She is not entirely successful in this, but her selections of the original texts make for interesting reading, and does some of the biographical detail.
