Choose a “travel book” which you have not previously read. This may be an historical account by a traveler. When you have read your chosen book, write a short essay (defined in a dictionary as a “short literary composition dealing with a single subject, usually from a personal point of view, without attempting completeness”) about an aspect of the book that has to do with travel/tourism. For example, what does the author convey about the value of travel? How does travel change the people in the book? How do travelers “under- stand” the people they meet and make sense of places? What motives do the charac- ters have for traveling? How do travelers vs. local peoples’ perspectives differ?
