From the Back Cover
This intriguing group of travel journals reveals the voices of women who traveled in Latin America during the nineteenth century. From French nuns who left their homelands to establish convents in Latin America to well-bred English women who accompanied their husbands on business travels, these women discovered a world beyond anything they had known or expected and recorded it in their journals. Their male counterparts may have discovered the land, but these women discovered its heart and soul.
