In this superbly researched investigation, Wood examines 11 Spanish women who traveled during a time when travel was facilitated by ever-improving transportation but was not so easy that it led to mass tourism. The author's subjects are on Cecilia Boehl de Faber (pseudonym Fernan Caballero), Carolina Coronado, Emilia Serrano, Rosario de Acuna, Emilia Pardo Bazan, Eva Canel, Sofia Casanova, Princesses Paz and Eulalia de Borbon, Carmen de Burgos (known as Colombine), and Mother Maria de Jesus Guell. Wood achieves her goal of acquainting English-speaking readers with these women and their travel narratives by offering translated excerpts of their works, contextualized within a framework of relevant biographical information and accompanied by an image of each traveler. With this volume Wood makes a solid contribution to not only the study of travel literature but also the fields of women's studies, history, and anthropology. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. * CHOICE *
