Gray: The Grand Tour which is a transcription of her 1875 journal and selected letters from the hundreds written during her travels. Lavishly illustrated with a forward by Bertram M. Gordon, Professor Emeritus of History at Mills College, the 250 page book is a rare look at the heart and mind of a local Victorian woman. You can also pre-order the book here.
