Isabella L. Bird
At some little distance outside Leh are the cremation grounds-desert places, destitute of any other vegetation than the Caprifolia horrida. Each family has its furnace kept in good repair. The place is doleful, and a funeral scene on the only sunless day I experienced in Ladak was indescribably dismal. After death no one touches the corpse but the lamas, who assemble in numbers in the case of a rich man.Isabella L. Bird (15 October 1831 – 7 October 1904), was a nineteenth-century English explorer, writer, photographer, and naturalist. With Fanny Jane Butler she founded the John Bishop Memorial hospital in Srinagar. She was the first woman to be elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
Acerca de Isabella L. Bird
Born in Yorkshire in 1831, Isabella Bird was an odd bird herself. An outdoorswoman, she chafed at the restrictions posed by her class and sex, and saw writing accounts of her travel experiences as an opportunity to escape a stifling town life for the open road. At the age of twenty-two, while most Victorian women were settling into marriage, Bird embarked on her first trip for the purpose of writing a travelogue. Her travels through Canada and the United States led to her book, An Englishwoman in America, published in 1856. The travel bug had bit.Undeterred by unchartered territory and political uprisings, Bird ventured every which direction, resulting in such books as The Hawaiian Archipelago and Unbeaten Tracks in Japan. When she married her long time friend, Dr. John Bishop, it was under the stipulation that she would still travel on her own. Her last journey was in October 1904, before dying from an inoperable tumor.
