520 1  "This riveting anthology tells the story of over 100 women
       spanning four centuries, from the lowliest kitchen skivvy 
       to ambassadors' wives: emigrants who settled the 
       wildernesses of the world in search of new and better 
       lives. Many were lured abroad by the promise of work or 
       fortune; some went because imperial duty called, while for
       others it was a most unfeminine lust for adventure that 
       drew them away. But all faced challenges in their homes 
       from home that were to test to the limit their spirits, 
       their resourcefulness, even their survival."--BOOK JACKET.
