A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains, Paperback / softback Book

A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains Paperback / softback

Part of the The Western Frontier Library Series series

Paperback / softback

Description

In 1872, Isabella Bird, daughter of a clergyman, set off alone to the Antipodes 'in search of health' and found she had embarked on a life of adventurous travel.

In 1873, wearing Hawaiian riding dress, she rode her horse through the American Wild West, a terrain only newly opened to pioneer settlement.

The letters that make up this volume were first published in 1879.

They tell of magnificent, unspoiled landscapes and abundant wildlife, of encounters with rattlesnakes, wolves, pumas and grizzly bears, and her reactions to the volatile passions of the miners and pioneer settlers.

A classic account of a truly astounding journey.
