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."
