Unbeaten Tracks in Japan by Isabella L. Bird

Unbeaten Tracks in Japan by Isabella L. Bird

Unbeaten Tracks in Japan is compiled of the letters she sent to her sister during her 7 months sojourn in Japan in 1878. Her travels there took her from Edo (now called Tokyo) through the interior – where she was often the first foreigner the locals had met – to Niigata, and from there to Aomori. There she crossed over to Yezo (Hokkaido), and her account on the life of the Ainu, an indigenous people of Japan, provides an interesting glimpse of days long past.

The Mirror of the Sea by Joseph Conrad

The Mirror of the Sea by Joseph Conrad

The Mirror of the Sea is a collection of autobiographical essays first published in various magazines. Conrad early in his life earned his bread as a Master Mariner in sailing ships. In his Author’s Note to this work, Conrad states,”Beyond the line of the sea horizon the world for me did not exist….Within these pages I make a full confession not of my sins but of my emotions. It is the best tribute my piety can offer to the ultimate shapers of my character, convictions, and, in a sense, destiny—to the imperishable sea, to the ships that are no more, and to the simple men who have had their day.”
