EXPLANATORY NOTES

From Our Editors

During colonial times, America was sprouting with perspectives oozing with intrigue and speculation. Those who had made it to the new continent had before them a land entirely unexplored, so they set out to understand its ways. Colonial American Travel Narratives is a collection of writings by Mary Rowlandson, Sarah Kemble Knight, William Byrd II and Dr. Alexander Hamilton. Together they show the development of the land and people and the transformation of the colonist from outsider to resident.
