Roy considers the connections Jameson makes between feminism and anti-racism in Winter Studies and Summer Rambles in Canada (1838), Hubbards insights in A Womans Way Through Unknown Labrador (1908) into her relationship with First Nations men who had both more and less power than she, and Laurences awareness of colonial and patriarchical oppression in her African memoir The Prophets Camel Bell (1963). Roy also examines archival and First Nations accounts of these womens travels, and the sketches, photos, and maps that accompany their writing, to examine contradictions in and question the implied objectivity of travel narratives.

She concludes by looking at the myth of getting there first and the ways in which new technologies of representation, including cameras, allow travellers and writers to claim new travel firsts.
