Just incredible - a masterpiece

Why aren't there more audible titles from her. Best book I've read in the last ten years, and I've read hundreds. What an adventure! It's a pioneer story and amazing insight in frontier life. Here is an example - she discovered these things towns were putting in called roads. Yes, Rome had roads quite before. Her writing is clear and thoughtful and most importantly... Not dated. Sure, what she she's is 150 years old, but her writing voice could be from yesterday.

Wonderful story

I read this book several years ago after moving to Estes Park. I enjoyed this audio version even more. It's amazing that this story is simply a compilation of Bird's letters to her sister. She is a vivid writer.

Isabella Bird, Intrepid Traveler.

A reading of her letters, this is a wonderful true story of the solo woman traveler from England who put Estes Park, Colorado on the map by being the second woman to climb Long’s Peak in what is now Rocky Mountain National Park.
Great for any visitor to the City of Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the City of Longmont, Colorado. It would be a great read for young adventurers as well.
