With meticulous scholarship, the author documents the struggles and achievements of a woman who defied the conventions and standards of Victorian England to blaze her own path. Archival photographs, drawings, letters, maps, and a riveting narrative create a portrait of this complex, larger than life woman who is still a source of inspiration today.
