Espey, David (ed), Writing the Journey: Essays, Stories, and Poems on Travel (: Longman, 2005).

From Francis Bacon's “On Travel” to Annie Dillard's “Sojourner,” this collection of travel writing encompasses explorations on the road to journeys of the soul.

Everyone has traveled–in reality or in their imagination–and as a result has come to look at home and self differently. This book offers ways to find meaning in the reading of travel literature and writing about experience as a form of travel. The collection focuses on travel writing in a variety of ways: motives for travel, modes and places, social and moral issues in travel, race and gender issues, travel and personal growth, and travel versus the yearning to be home.
