Isabella L Bird (1831 - 1904) was a 19th century British traveler and writer. Since her father was a Church of England priest the family moved many times during her childhood. Bird traveled to Colorado when she heard the air was very healthy. She covered the 800 miles on horseback riding like a man and not sidesaddle. During her adventure she wrote a series of letters home to her sister. These were published in the Leisure Hour magazine. The letters were later published in her most famous book A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains.

With contributions from nearly 40 scholars, A Companion to the First Ladies presents the first comprehensive historiographical overview of first ladies in US history: the wivesÃ¹or sometimes other female relativesÃ¹who have stood by US presidents, often as powerful political figures in their own right. The original essays that make up this collection address the impact of these women not only on White House responsibilities but on elections, presidential policies, and social causesÃ¹as well as on shaping their husbands' legacies. This volume brings the first ladies into crisp historiographical focus, assessing how these women and their contributions have been perceived in both popular literature and scholarly debate. Covering all of the first ladies from Martha Washington through to Michelle Obama, the volume underlines the growing scholarly appreciation for a position that has itself gone through a great deal of evolution since the early American republic.
