520    In 1855, Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote to his publisher, 
       complaining about the irritating fad of "scribbling 
       women." Whether they were written by professionals, by 
       women who simply wanted to connect with others, or by 
       those who wanted to leave a record of their lives, those 
       "scribbles" are fascinating, informative, and instructive.
       Margaret Catchpole was a transported prisoner whose eleven
       letters provide the earliest record of white settlement in
       Australia. Writing hundreds of years later, Aboriginal 
       writer Doris Pilkington-Garimara wrote a novel about 
       another kind of exile in Australia. Young Isabella Beeton,
       one of twenty-one children and herself the mother of four,
       managed to write a groundbreaking cookbook before she died
       at the age of twenty-eight. World traveler and journalist 
       Nelly Bly used her writing to expose terrible injustices. 
       Sei Shonagan has left us poetry and journal entries that 
       provide a vivid look at the pampered life and intrigues in
       Japan's imperial court. Ada Blackjack, sole survivor of a 
       disastrous scientific expedition in the Arctic, fought 
       isolation and fear with her precious Eversharp pencil. Dr.
       Dang Thuy Tram's diary, written in a field hospital in the
       steaming North Vietnamese jungle while American bombs fell,
       is a heartbreaking record of fear and hope. Many of the 
       women in "Scribbling Women" had eventful lives. They 
       became friends with cannibals, delivered babies, stole 
       horses, and sailed on whaling ships. Others lived quietly,
       close to home. But each of them has illuminated the world 
       through her words. A note from the author: OOPS! On page 
       197, the credit for the Portrait of Harriet Jacobs on page
       43 should read: courtesy of Library of Congress, not Jean 
       Fagan Yellin. On page 197, the credit for the portrait of 
       Isabella Beeton on page 61 should read: National Portrait 
       Gallery, London. On page 198, the credit for page 147 
       should be Dang Kim Tram, not Kim Tram Dang. We are very 
       sorry about the mix-up in the Photo Credits, they will be 
       updated on any new editions or reprints. From the 
       Hardcover edition.
