Women's Travel Writing Resources

Just come across this useful resource via the Intute blog, the University of Minnesota's digitization project Women's Travel Writing 1830-1930. The site provides access to many texts that are difficult to get hold of, and as the focus is more towards American writers* there are lots I haven't come across before so I'm looking forward to new discoveries! Particularly useful is the grouping of writers by geographic area and theme, so someone working on Mary Kinglsley, for example, can easily find other writing on West Africa. The bibliographic resources are also really useful.

*British travel writers of the period can also be found at the Victorian Women Writers Projectalthough as this is a general collection it's necessary to know specifically what travel writing you're looking for.
