Yangtze Valley and Beyond Paperback / softback

Description

Isabella Bird was one of the greatest travelers and travel writers of all time, and this is her last major book, a sympathetic look at inland China and beyond into Tibet at the end of the 19th century.

It many ways, Isabella created the model for travel writing today, and this one of her greatest works.
