KIRKUS REVIEW

For the first time translated into English, this travel-fiction of a Frenchwoman married to an Italian covers some ten years of the 1850's of feminine observation, comment, criticism, description of the things that happened to her, the way they traveled, the people they met, the things they saw, in lively fashion. Here are the speculations of her husband, the types of society, native and white, from New Zealand, Tahiti, New Caledonia, the Hawaiian Islands, California, Mexico...her real curiosity about the new experiences she has and her many, very human adventures...Definitely a piece which deserves to be better known for the characteristic Dumas ingenuity, romanticism, drama, local color; interesting aspects of the author and the handling of fresh material.
