Overview
In the autumn of 1873, Isabella Bird embarked by rail from San Francisco's east bay, bound for the Colorado Rockies.

More than one hundred twenty years after their first publication, Isabella Bird's letters to her sister continue to thrill readers with their account of the then-untamed and largely unknown American mountain wilderness.
