Women travellers accompanying men 23 Jun. 2012
By G. Duigu - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Hoe attempts a feminist analysis by comparing the writing of women and men accompanying each other on travels to intrepid places before 1950. She is not entirely successful in this, but her selections of the original texts make for interesting reading, and does some of the biographical detail.
