“This is a book of travel, written by a woman who had not the ample means at her disposal to make her tour merely a matter of first-class passages and best hotels.
Miss Wheatcroft travelled by sea and river, by train, gharry rickshaw, dandy, tonga, elephant, donkey and Shanks’s pony. She patronised Dutch, English and Chinese steamers; lived now in hotels now in the homely boarding houses of the Y.W.C.A and the G.F.S” (from book cover).
