Tweedie, Ethel Brilliana. America as I Saw It. New York: Macmillan, 1913.

Description

The Globe: "No American could ask for a more sympathetic critic of his nation than Mrs. Alec-Tweedie, for she frankly loves both the country and the people. ... A book of acute and cutting kind criticism."

The Daily Telegraph: "Mrs. Alec-Tweedie has produced a brisk, breezy, rattling record of impressions gathered at full speed. . . . Not for one moment could the least sympathetic reader find himself bored by Mrs. Alec-Tweedie's society, and to be able to say this is to say much indeed."

The Standard {in a Leader): " Mrs. Alec-Tweedie in her witty book, 'America as I Saw It,' mercilessly attacks what she regards as the myths of Transatlantic energy and hustle. There is no doubt a good deal of truth in her criticism. A gifted author.''

Franck, Harry Alverson. A Vagabond Journey around the World. New York: The Century Co, 1910.

Description

This is Harry A. Franck's first book. It's the account of his epic journey around the world. He originally intended to travel without money, without weapons, and without carrying baggage or supplies. Instead, he wanted to depend both for protection and the necessities of life on personal endeavor and the native resources of each locality. He altered his original plan to decide to carry a kodak camera and enough money to cover photography supplies ($104). The chief object of the journey was to live and work among the world's workers in every clime. His plan included no fixed itinerary. The details of route he left to chance and the exigencies of circumstances.

Fletcher Lummis, Charles. A Tramp across the Continent. New York: C. Scribner’s Sons, 1892.

Description

When young Charles Lummis heard about a job in the small town of Los Angeles more than a century ago, he walked all the way to it—across the plains, up Pike's Peak, down Devil's Gorge, through the Grand Canyon, over the desert. It was, by conservative estimate, one of the grandest hikes in American history. With no reason to be modest, Lummis called his "unpretentious" account of it "the wayside notes of a happy vagabonding."

De Windt, Harry. From Paris to New York by Land. London: G. Newnes, 1904.

Description

"What was the object of this stupendous voyage, or the reward to be gained by this apparently unnecessary risk of life and endurance of hardships?" Harry De Windt's aim was to find out if a railway that connected Paris and New York could be constructed - from today's point of view an almost incredible purpose and effort. Originally published in 1903.
