Taking a biographical casebook approach, this study examines four
women writers of natural history who traveled between the 1790s and
1890s. Focusing on the travel writings of Mary Wollstonecraft,
Harriet Martineau, Isabella Bird Bishop, and Mary Kingsley, four
women who primarily traveled alone, Solitary Travelers asks what
sort of rhetorical strategies were used by women to move popularly
accessible travel accounts into the scientific, professional sphere
during a time when opportunities for women to engage in natural
history field work became more and more restricted.
