I read Isabella Bird's book, A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains, several years ago. Now that I'm spending a lot of time in Hawaii, I was very interested in hearing her impressions of the islands in the 1860's. While her view of most of the "natives" is far from enlightened, the descriptions of her travel on horseback around the islands are fascinating. She was intrepid by today's standards, not just by the standards of her day.
