Barbara Hodgson"The diaries of Elizabeth Sinkler Coxe capture the exuberance of travel at the end of the nineteenth century. Coxe’s intrepid spirit for venturing to places as remote as Khartoum, her enthusiasm for seeing new sites, and her zest to share her travels with her family, makes for compelling reading. With the additional background material provided, this book is a valuable reference for all interested in the history of travel."
