From Library Journal:

Frawley presents a scholarly study of what it meant for Victorian women to travel outside of England and to publish their findings upon their return. The introduction of steam locomotion and railways in the 19th century-and the work of travel entrepreneur Thomas Cook-allowed both men and women of the English middle and upper classes-Mary Shelley, Elizabeth Eastlake, Mary Kingsley, Harriet Martineau, and Frances Trollope, among them-to explore cultures other than their own. The author argues, however, that many of the women who chose travel writing over the more acceptable and lucrative genre of popular fiction did so to gain credibility and move into the "high prestige male speciality" genres of nonfiction. Organized by geographic region, this book is a solid study, well written and reasonably free of academic jargon, that will be of interest to scholars.
