9781885211286: Travelers' Tales America: True Stories of Life on the Road (Travelers' Tales Guides)

Travelers’ Tales America draws a portrait of the nation through stories of those who have walked, flown, driven, paddled, sailed, hitchhiked, or otherwise traversed the landscape. These stories explore America’s great cities and small towns, open spaces and empty highways, poignant history and mundane everyday life, the great outdoors and the wilderness within. Through encounters with people and places in the center of things and the back of beyond, these travelers draw a portrait of this remarkable country and reveal what it means to discover America. Notable authors include Jim Harrison, Garrett Hongo, E. Annie Proulx, Jan Morris, Sallie Tisdale, James Fallows, Dave Barry, and David Lamb.

From Library Journal:

Setterberg (The Roads Taken, LJ 11/1/95) has compiled an armchair traveler's delight of over 100 essays and short excerpts on the human experience in the United States as seen by the contemporary traveler. Charles Kuralt, Andrei Codrescu, Jan Morris, Jonathan Raban, Philip Caputo, and many others write about the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York, aloneness in a New Mexican wilderness, diamond hunting in Murfreesboro, TN, and caving in West Virginia. From awe-inspiring natural beauty to overwhelming commercialism, these sometimes humorous, often poignant essays evoke a country and people of variety, individuality, and familiarity. Many of the essays have been reprinted from other sources. For all travel collections. (Index and last chapters of travel information not seen.)?Linda M.
