    Wow, what a story! And what a woman!

  • Samantha

    This is absolutely amazing. I feel like Disney could probably do this one, although I’d love to see a more realistic film done ;)

  • Just a Swedish girl

    Absolutly! But they should make at least 1 of the kids should live.

  • Akio

    Uh… I hate being this person, but I’ve read the two were reunited in the town of Oyapock, not a boat….

  • Jason Porath

    In the book I read, it was on a boat that Jean had actually built, which was in a bay on the Oyapock river. I don’t have it with me (returned to library), but if I’m wrong, I’d be happy to correct.

  • Tokyo Angel

    This is amazing and inspirational, just like many of the princesses! Thank you for sharing Isabel’s story.

  • Ciara Tamay

    Just found your site and am full on bingeing on princesses. First read about this lady on, amazing story with amazing characters. If Charles Marie de la condamine were a woman I would nominate him for princessification.
