E. Oe. Somerville - Through Connemara in a governess cart
Through Connemara in a governess cart
Edith Somerville and Martin Ross's lively account of their journey through Conemara in the late 19th century. The book contains many vivid descriptions of the places they vist and the people they encounter, and there are some very humorous incidents. Somerville and Ross were well educated, upper class ladies, and their descriptions of the lower class characters they encounter are perhaps a touch condescending now and again, but at that date this is probably to be expected, and they are always good humoured.
