A Look Inside "American Lit 101"
Literature, like travel, is all about the trip. And in this issue of American Road®, the trip is all about literature.
The main feature, one of American Road's Original Series, "New York's Washington Irving Route," visits the Hudson Valley haunts of the Original Knickerbocker—America's First Man of Letters—the author who set a headless horseman on the heels of Ichabod Crane.
"American Road's Top 12 Classic Travel Books" celebrates the best travel journals of the past two centuries, with writers such as Lewis and Clark, Wolfe, and Kerouac at the wheel. The American Road departments find their way to Walt Whitman's Birthplace, Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House, and Herman Melville's Arrowhead.
Whether strolling the banks of Walden Pond, dropping by the House of Seven Gables, or puttering around with a pup like John Steinbeck did in Travels with Charlie, good literature draws the past into the present and shapes substance into memory. Call it magic or call it Ishmael.
