After her 2019 Peachtree release, Isabella Bird is hot off the press in paperback. Hooray! Eagle-eyed readers, much like Isabella jotting down her detailed observations in her notebooks, may notice some fun changes on the cover. Instead of galloping down a mountain, Isabella and her steed are surveying the stunning mountain views. The observant reader may catch the changes in the title as well. The addition of "true" and "explorer" immediately lets readers know that this is a picture book biography about a real person—a daring explorer, Isabella Bird, who challenged society's boundaries for women during the Victorian Age and wrote 10 bestselling books about her explorations around the world.
"No man now ever says of any difficult thing that I could not do it."—Isabella Bird.
