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.
That was easier said than done in Victorian England. But somehow Isabella 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.
