This book explores issues of representation and cultural negotiation in nineteenth-century travel narratives, focusing on writers from the United States who traveled to Latin America and Latin American writers who traveled to North America. Such a cross-cultural study of travel literature reveals the discursive processes of national formation in both the United States and Latin America. This book contains eight black and white photographs.
