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.
