Synopsis- Constance Frederica Gordon-Cumming, Scots born to a large and influential family was both an author, traveler and accomplished artist. She was also an unusual woman of her time, outspoken and independent moving from continent to continent, country to country alone and seemingly without any clear cut foreward planning. I first came across her story while researching my great grandmother Geraldine Sweeny McGowan's time in Levuka, Fiji.
I felt the artist deserved a story of her own... Part 2 follows her to California and the Yosemite Valley, a story she recounts in one of her travel books.
