I'm in the beginning stages of brainstorming my thesis for my writing program, and I'm heavily considering writing a travel piece. I'd like to have a look around at some of the more successful approaches to the subject, and would like to get my hands on as much material as possible while I explore the idea a bit. I'm trying to focus heavily on creative non-fiction/personal essays rather than guide books. My own initial thoughts were books like Great Plains by Ian Fraizer or Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods.
I'll take recommendations on books, essays, short stories, blogs, authors, etc.
Thanks so much!
