An anthology of excerpts from essays, short stories, a play, a novel-en travels and means of transportation and regions -- by prominent American, French and English . Here we find Anthony Trollepe, Robert Leuis Stevenson, Henry James, Steinbeck, Audub Lewis, Priestley, Thornton Wilder, D.H. Lawrence, Thomas Wolfe, Upton Sinelair, Melville, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Samuel Clemens, F. Scott Fitxgerald, Hemingway, Edward Newhouse, Mary Hess Martwick, Des Passos, Aldeus Huxley, Jean Cocteau, E. B. White, Thereau -- a generous choice and varied. Regions and cities give broad compass- from Niagara to the Florida Keys, from Nantucket to the Columbia River, cities, towns, distributes extravagance of nature, repeats on a few such as New York and Los Angleles. A new in selection and editorial judgement, perhaps, and literary emphasis rather than geographic, but the market is specialized.
