Literature, like travel, is all about the trip. And in this issue of American Road our trip is all about literature.
Our lead feature “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 Roads’ Top 12 Classic Travel Books” celebrates the best travel journals of the past two centuries, with writers such as Lewis and Clark, Ilf and Petrov, Wolfe, Kerouac, and Beauvoir at the wheel. “Literary Postcards” revisits tourist sites inspired by the Great American Novel—who wouldn’t want to ride the Ben Hur Race at Coney Island or hang out in Maine with the Old Man of the Sea? Our departments find their way to Walt Whitman’s Birthplace, Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House, and Herman Melville’s Arrowhead.
