Unbeaten Tracks in Japan
An Account of Travels in the Interior Including Visits to the Aborigines of Yezo and the Shrine of NikkoBook - 1973
This classic travel book details Isabella Bird's 1878 trip, where she set out alone to explore the interior of Japan--a rarity not only because of Bird's gender but because the country was virtually unknown to Westerners. The Japan she describes is not the sentimental world of Madame Butterfly but a vibrant land of real people with a complex culture and hard scrabble lives. Illustrations.
