A Victorian Lady in the Himalayas

Take a look at this wonderful account of a trip to remote Ladakh in 1896.

I edited and compiled the book based on the recently discovered diaries of a Victorian traveller. Maria Caroline Bolitho was a Cornishwoman who made the journey on horseback (in winter) over the Himalayan passes. They were tough in those days!http://www.amazon.co.uk
