The right sort of woman victorian travel writers and the fitness of an empire by Precious McKenzie( )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The rhetoric surrounding Empire, freedom, and adventure are nowhere more striking than in nineteenth-century British women's travel writing. The Right Sort of Woman charts the progression of British feminism in relationship to exploration of the Empire. Precious McKenzie introduces us to the lesser known writings of Florence Douglas Dixie, Mrs. Aubrey Le Blond, and Isabel Savory, and also revisits the more widely read travel texts of Isabella Bird Bishop and Mary Kingsley. Their travel writings explore the hotly debated Victorian ideologies of femininity, equality, and fitness. McKenzie contends that British women travel writers found opportunities for freedom when traveling abroad. Women travelers could participate in what were traditionally men's sports: hunting, riding, canoeing, shooting, mountaineering when far away from strict Victorian social codes of behavior. Because of their athletic pursuits while abroad, British women travelers found their health improved as did their self-reliance and self-confidence. McKenzie considers how sports shaped the British feminist movement and then became integral to the revolutionary image of the New Woman

Among hills and valleys in western China : incidents of missionary work by Hannah Davies( Book )
6 editions published between 1901 and 2010 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Among hills and valleys in western China, first published in 1901, is a detailed and accurate picture of missionary work undertaken by Miss Hannah Davies, who had made it her life's work to tour the Chinese provinces and preach her Christian belief, as well as encouraging local people to build places of worship and also helping those in poverty. Some of the sketches of life and character are extraordinarily descriptive and beautiful, and a remarkable journey is described in this series of letters and journal extracts. There is, amongst other stories, a fascinating account of an assembly addressed by Bishop Cassells, the first Protestant bishop in western China, and his heartfelt pleas to the people to help build a new church. The book is well illustrated, with an introduction by Isabella Bird (now Mrs J.F. Bishop), the nineteenth-century British missionary, travel writer and historian."--Publisher website
