Go around the world with daring nineteenth-century female explorer Isabella Bird in this adventure-filled picture book biography. A perfect girl-power story for Women''s History Month!

"Sure to inspire the explorers of tomorrow." ?BookPage

"Isabella Bird was like a wild vine stuck in a too-small pot. She needed more room. She had to get out. She had to explore."

Exploring was easier said than done in Victorian England. But Isabella Bird persisted, and with each journey, she breathed in new ways to see and describe everything around her. Question by question, word by word, Isabella bloomed. First, out in the English countryside. Then, off to America and Canada. And eventually, around the world, to Africa, Asia, Australia, and more.

This dashing picture book biography about the first female member of the Royal Geographic Society takes readers around the world with a daring nineteenth-century female explorer and author. Kristy Caldwell''s detailed, graphic novel-inspired illustrations illuminate Bird''s exciting global travels, and Lori Mortensen''s back matter, author''s note, and bibliography will satisfy the curiosity of readers who want to learn more.
