This classic travel book details Isabella Bird’s 1878 trip, where she set out alone to explore the interior of Japan – a rarity not only because of Bird’s sex but because the country was virtually unknown to Westerners.
The Japan she describes is not the sentimental world of Madame Butterfly but a vibrant land of real people with a complex culture and hardscrabble lives.
