Published in 1851, Lady Emmeline Stuart Wortley’s account of her travels through the Americas during the mid nineteenth century represents an early example of the travel writing genre. The United States was becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination for Europeans at this time, and Lady Emmeline’s writings present a quintessentially British impression of America and its people. This third and final volume records her journeys through Panama to Lima, describing in detail the architecture, climate, people and scenery of Peru, and her onward journey to Kingston, Jamaica. Written in an engaging and conversational tone, the volumes are both informative and entertaining, fulfilling the author’s aim to ‘amuse’ with ‘the gossip of travel.’
