Description:
In 1854, Isabella Bird left England and began traveling as a cure for her ill health. This volume contains letters written during her six-month journey through the Colorado Rockies. Traveling alone, usually on horseback, often with no clear idea of where she will spend the night in what is mostly uninhabited wilderness, she covers over a thousand miles, most of it during the winter months.
