South of the Border: Women Travelers to Latin America
Courageous and intrepid women made their way to Latin America in the nineteenth and twentieth century. Some traveled with their husband while several brave souls went alone. Either way, they encountered a culture and peoples that were foreign to them. This encounter inspired them to write about their experiences and impressions in letters home, a personal diary, or a book. These women bring their own unique perspective to our understanding of Latin America that readers will find illuminating.
