Summary
This unusual guide will take the tourist or the armchair traveler to literary landmarks throughout the South and Southwest. The great tradition of Southern literature comes alive in the homes of writers like Sidney Lanier, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Kate Chopin, and William Faulkner. Included are many early American authors like Captain John Smith and William Byrd of Virginia, Davy Crockett of Tennessee, and Edgar Allen Poe, as well as the major figures of twentieth-century writing, like Flannery O'Connor, Thomas Wolfe, and Ernest Hemingway. The rich and colorful writing of the Southwest is also fully covered--from Zane Grey's hunting lodge in Arizona and the locales of the works of J. Frank Dobie to the mystical landscape of New Mexico that inspired Willa Cather and D.H. Lawrence. Unexpected and offbeat places are also described: St. Simons Island, Georgia, where Fanny Kemble wrote a fascinating journal; the Rugby Restoration in Tennessee; Fort Gibson, Oklahoma, from where Washington Irving set off on a trip across the prairie; the settings of writings about the Indians of the Southwest. Here is an indispensable guidebook for the literary traveler that's also a handy desk reference for students.--Jacket flap
