American Travel Narratives as a Literary Genre From 1542-1832 the Art of a Perpetual Journey
1993 0-7734-9304-2
This work establishes the shared theme, topics and stylistic traits of American travel narratives. Though the narratives span three hundred years and the authors belong to three different populations (explorers, colonial settlers, and American citizens), their writings may be grouped together as a genre and assessed by the same standards as other literary works.
