Adventures in the Rocky Mountains
Synopses & Reviews
Inspired by Penguin's innovative Great Ideas series, our new Great Journeys series presents the most incredible tours, voyages, treks, expeditions, and travels ever written- from Isabella Bird's exaltation in the dangers of grizzlies, rattlesnakes, and cowboys in the Rocky Mountains to Marco Polo's mystified reports of a giant bird that eats elephants during his voyage along the coasts of India. Each beautifully packaged volume offers a way to see the world anew, to rediscover great civilizations and legends, vast deserts and unspoiled mountain ranges, unusual flora and strange new creatures, and much more.
In this classic account written in the late 1800s by a Victorian adventurer, Bird exalts the dangers of grizzlies, rattlesnakes, and cowboys in the Rocky Mountains as she travels to improve her ill health.
