Summary expansion
Pfeiffer was born in Vienna, she spent most of her twenties and thirties in the Galician city of Lemberg (Lviv, Ukraine), married to a doctor. After her husband's death in 1838, she used her inheritance money to travel, visiting Iceland, Scandinavia, Turkey, the Holy Land, and Egypt. She then made two round-the-world trips in 1846-48 and 1851-54, and a voyage to Madagascar in 1857. The present volume relates her experiences in Brazil, Chile, Tahiti, Canton, Borneo, Sumatra, Hindoustan, California (during the Gold Rush), Peru, and Madagascar
