More About A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains by Isabella Lucy Bird
 
 
 
Overview
1881. With illustrations. Isabella Lucy Bird broke away from the traditions of the middle-class woman in Victorian Britain and established herself as a determined and intelligent traveler. Through her accounts of her travel adventures she challenged and delighted a wide and appreciative audience. Her travel books made her one of the most famous women in late-Victorian Britain. In the course of her travels, Bird landed in San Francisco and traveled to Colorado where she had her romantic adventure with the desperado Jim Nugent. For months in the high Rockies, in and around Estes Park, as autumn turned to winter, Isabella was beguiled not only by the wild Rocky Mountains but also by the charms of Mountain Jim who took her on expeditions and encouraged her boldness. With Jim's assistance she became the second woman to climb Long's Peak, a mountain of over 14,000 feet. This delightful volume recounts her adventures in the Rockies.
