Regular price $9.00 Sale

Anna Forbes, wife of the distinguished naturalist, Henry O. Forbes, was one of those resourceful Victorian women who traveled to remote locales, lived a life of privation for months on end--observing everyone and everything around them--then published unassuming accounts of their experiences, which 100 years later still make interesting, entertaining reading. Unbeaten Tracks takes the reader from Batavia (then the capital of the Dutch East Indies) to Celebes, the Moluccas, the Nutmeg Islands, and finally Timur, where the book ends dramatically with the author, alone and stricken by fever, awaiting her husband's return from the dark interior. This 1987 Oxford University Press Paperback is in Good condition.
