Book Description Penguin, UK, 1985. Card Cover. Book Condition: Good. When in 1872 at the age of forty, the rather earnest daughter of a country parson abandoned the rectory nest and began her pioneering journeys to some of the most inhospitable corners of the world, she was aware that she was escaping the frustrations and shackles of Victorian middle class life.
