The Deer Cry Pavilion : a story of Westerners in Japan 1868-1905 by Pat Barr( Book )

"From 1870 onwards, increasing numbers of westerners arrived to help the Japanese build their modern industrialised state. There were teachers and doctors, missionaries and military officers, diplomats, scientists and engineers, travellers and merchants, whose motives ranged from the fiercely evangelical to the downright mercenary. Mrs Barr has drawn extensively upon their spirited first-hand accounts to trace the development of schools and communications, trade and diplomacy, missionary endeavour and technological achievement, and she selects from the light hearted accounts by globe-trotters, the informal records of shipping clerks, consular officials and local journalists to complete the colourful mosaic."--Dust jacket flap
A curious life for a lady; the story of Isabella Bird, a remarkable Victorian traveller by Pat Barr( Book )

26 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Isabella Bird was a woman of remarkable gifts. In 1872, at the age of forty, this rather earnest daughter of a country parson abandoned the rectory nest and began her pioneering journeys to some of the most inhospitable corners of the world. Undismayed by discomfort or danger she was to spend almost thirty years travelling - to the Rocky Mountains, the Sandwich Isles, to Japan, Malaya, Kashmir and Tibet, to Persia, Korea and China - where an indomitable spirit, an unassuming cordiality and, above all, a limitless capacity for being interested won her universal welcome. Her accounts of her experiences became best-selling books and established for Isabella Bird a reputation as one of the great travel writers of her day"--Goodreads.com
