Harriet Martineau was a doughty and influential campaigner for multiple social causes; Florence Nightingale became universally acclaimed reformer of nursing and hospital practices; Amelia Edwards, formley a novelist and prolific professional writer, returned from Egypt to found the Egypt Exploration society and endow the first chair of egyptology at a British university. All three were independent minded women of strong character and exceptional gifts. They were accomplished writers each with a distinctive style and their accounts of their Nile journeys are richly individual and full of life, thought and observation.
