At a time when a woman's world wasn't much wider than her own home, Isabella Bird (1831-1904) earned a reputation as one of the Victorian era's most intrepid explorers and writers. 'Among the Tibetans' recounts her rugged passage through the Himalayas by horseback and her four-month sojourn amid 'the pleasantest of people.' Bird's evocative accounts of Tibetan ceremonies, decorations, costumes, and music, along with her vivid descriptions of palaces, temples, and monasteries, offer rare glimpses of a vanished world. Unabridged republication of the classic 1894 edition. 21 black-and-white illustrations.
