Format: Hardcover
I read a review of this book in an Australian newspaper and felt that I just had to have it. Due to it's popularity it was out of stock, so of course I looked on Amazon and there it was - and even with postage it's cheaper to buy overseas ! My package arrived safely and with excitement I ripped into it to reveal the most gorgeous book filled with amazing women and their stories. These women survived hardship, often with extreme weather and lengthy travel by any means in order to satify their wanderlust in a time when women were meant to stay at home and tend to husbands and children. I love that they remained true to themselves, however they saw themselves, some dressing as men to allow a greater range of travelling experience and others ensuring they travelled with the best goods such as porcelain teasets and linen sheets. If you adore armchair travel then this is the book for you - it takes you back to the time when a journey was dangerous, romantic and exotic and when the fun was in the getting there.

Had no idea women struck out into the unknown world as early as the 1500's. What an inspirational account of women travelers through the centuries. The photographs were priceless and the overall design of the book was one of the best I have ever seen. Many thanks to the author for the incredible research that went into the making of this book.
