This collection of women's travel writing dispels the notion that women shouldn't travel, by showing how there are few corners of the world that have not been visited by women travellers. There are also few difficulties, physical or emotional, real or imagined, that have not been met by women.
Jane Robinson first began collecting books at the age of 7, when a local library banned her from using a jam tart as a bookmark. After graduating in English from Somerville College, Oxford, she joined a firm of antiquarian booksellers specializing in travel and exploration. She left bookselling to pursue a writing career and in 1990 her first book, Wayward Women, was published. She is now established as one of history's most intrepid women travellers - in an armchair. Her other books include Parrot Pie for Breakfast: an anthology of woman pioneers, and Angels of Albion, a collection of writings from women during the Indian mutiny. She lives in Oxford with her husband and two sons.
