Per preface, Harrison "is an American colored woman who undertook, at the age of thirty-six, to work her way around the world." She, "an accomplished lady's maid," took nightschool classes in Spanish and French; between 1927 and 1935 she lived in twenty-seven different countries. Editor Morris has left intact Harrison's spelling and grammar, which she observes to be "artless and vivid"
