Traveling south : travel narratives and the construction of American identity

Cox, John David. (Author).

Summary

Summary: "Traveling South is the first major study of how narratives of travel through the antebellum South helped to construct an American national identity during the years between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. Drawing on a broad range of texts that includes slave narratives, domestic literature, and soldiers' diaries, as well as more traditional forms of travel writing, John D. Cox extends the boundaries of travel literature both as a genre and as a subject of academic study."
