The Cambridge Companion to American Travel Writingby Alfred Bendixen
Travel writing has always been intimately linked with the construction of American identity. These specially commissioned essays examine a wide range of responses to the problems posed by landscapes found both at home and abroad. Throughout, the contributors focus on the role played by travel writing in the definition and formation of national identity, and consider the diverse experiences of canonical and lesser-known writers. This Companion forms an invaluable guide for students approaching this new, important, and exciting subject for the first time.
