Summary
"The essays collected in Mapping Region in Early American Writing study how American writers thought about the spaces around them. The contributors reconsider the various roles regions--imagined politically, economically, racially, and figuratively--played in the formation of American communities, both real and imagined. The texts they study--some canonical, others archival, some literary, others scientific, polemical, or documentary--create and reveal important mental mappings and cartographies that reveal how a diversity of populations imagined themselves, their communities, and their nation as occupying various places in the American landscape"--Provided by publisher
