To be alone in the Park from the afternoon till the last glory of the afterglow has faded with no books but a Bible and Prayer book is truly delightfulp 76What No That sounds awful I cannot think of a worse time than being stuck anywhere with no books but thoseIsabella Bird was a British woman in the late 19th century who was encouraged by doctors in her late 30s to do a bit of traveling in effort to try to make all her woes better She took them up on that offer and had horrible adventures like the one detailed above from page 76 of this unfortunately abridged version of A Lady s Life in the Rocky Mountains In addition to that above statement she was thrown from a horse during an encounter with an ambling grizzly bear and nearly froze her tits off night after night in a cabin that provided her very little protection from the elements We all cried and moaned about the Polar Vortex not that long ago Yeah we got nothing on this ladyShe woke up to find the sheet she used to cover her head had frozen to her faceBird had a few not so nice things to say about Native Americans Chinese and I think some Mexicans and definitely cowboys she was a product of her time and place a British woman traveling in a fairly unexplored part of America the Colorado territory out of her element This doesn t explain her attitude towards well everyone but there it is She didn t at least shy away from some adventure wanting to ride her horse not side saddle like women ought to do in that day but just like a man because that s the only way you can actually get somewhereNot only did she ride rough with the men folk she wrote about it as well I like writing too but put me on a trail for a couple hours I m pretty well worthless by the time I get in at the end of the day And here she s all tramping through the woods no trail avoiding bears and rattlesnakes and chipmunks spelled back then chipmonks isn t that adorable wearing however many layers of skirt and she gets where she s going pulls out paper and is all Dear sister writing some of the most lovely prose about the Rocky Mountains I ve ever read Except for those parts where she wrote really awful things about anyone who wasn t white or I guess BritishPenguin had this great idea to make this Great Journey s collection publishing abridged versions of some great travelogues from history both men and women I m excited about that though continuously saddened by the fact that this was an abridgment just because abridgments make me incredibly sad I have a few others that I got at the same time that I picked this one up and I ll check them out Ultimately though I d rather read the complete works from which they were abridged The idea with this collection I suppose is that they re small enough to stick in a backpack on one of your own adventures sitting by the campfire at night or next to a bubbling brook during a break in your hike And it s true reading Bird s words about her travels through the Rocky Mountains wants me to drop everything and go backpacking except for all the bad things Bird went through While there is no longer a Mountain Jim to help me along the way who knows who I might meet up with AdventureI will say this though there will be in my backpack than a freaking Bible and a prayer book because come on
