about

Victorian Women travelers were fearless. Eliza Bradley was shipwrecked, captured and taken as a slave until the British Consul paid a ransom to free her. Annie Hore set off with her baby son and missionary husband only 11 years after Stanley took the same route in pursuit of Dr. Livingstone. Helen Caddick was carried across Africa in a hammock accompanied by 25 local bearers, cooks, guides and a boy translator who spoke only Biblical English. Read their stories, in their own words, and learn what adventure used to be.
