Travels in the United States, etc. during 1849 and 1850

Volume 2

Published in 1851, Lady Emmeline Stuart Wortley's account of her travels through the Americas during the mid nineteenth century represents an early example of the travel writing genre. The United States was becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination for Europeans at this time, and Lady Emmeline's writings present a quintessentially British impression of America and its people. Volume II of this three-volume work follows on from Lady Emmeline's experiences in the United States as recounted in volume I, taking the reader on a journey through Mexico. Written in an engaging and conversational tone, the volumes are both informative and entertaining, fulfilling the author's aim to 'amuse' with 'the gossip of travel.'
