Wayward women: great books where women hit the road

At Flashlight Worthy, Anne Matthews, co-author of Deep Creek, named a list of six great books where women find adventure away from home.

One book on the list:
The Journal of Madam Knight
by Sarah Kemble Knight

A New England business-woman's 1704 horseback journey from Boston to New York yields the first U. S. road-trip book. Still among the best, thanks to Kemble's high spirits and sardonic eye.
Read about another book on the list.
