Difficult to categorize, it is both an arresting travel book and a moving exploration of her personal and political selves. Wollstonecraft set out for Scandinavia just two weeks after her first suicide attempt, on a mission from the lover whose affections she doubted, to recover his silver on a ship that had gone missing. With her baby daughter and a nursemaid, she traveled across the dramatic landscape and wrote sublime descriptions of the natural world, and the events and people she encountered. Fascinating appendices include Imlay's commission to recover his lost silver, Wollstonecraft's recently discovered letter to the Danish Prime Minister asking for assistance, the private letters she wrote to Imlay during her travels in Scandinavia, a chapter from Godwin's memoir of Wollstonecraft, and a selection of contemporary reviews.

Few are as well-acquainted with The Emigrants, Imlay's delightful epistolary novel set in the Ohio River Valley of Kentucky, then the American frontier. The Emigrants (1793), one of the first Americna novels, contrasts the rigid political structures of England with the promise of the American West as a socially just utopia. Its sensational love plots also dramatize the plight of women trapped in degrading marriages, frankly advocating relaxed divorce laws." -- back cover+-+87218959651195ocn065331999file17930.92Imlay, GilbertA topographical description of the western territory of North America containing a succinct account of its climate, natural history, population, agriculture, manners and customs, with an ample description of the several divisions into which that country in divided : an accurate statement of the various tribes of Indians that inhabit the frontier country : to which is annexed a delineation of the laws and government of the state of Kentucky : tending to shew the probable rise and grandeur of the American empire: in a series of letters to a friend in EnglandHistory11810ocn744956785file17930.73Imlay, GilbertA description of the western territory of North America; containing a succinct account of its climate, natural history, population, agriculture, manners and customs ...
