The Travel Narrative: In pictures

You thought I was done with this theme? Well, maybe just one more post. Here are a few literary journeys for those of you with a cartographer’s bent. 


From On the Road,  Sal Paradise’s path through the US and Mexico:


Steinbeck’s rambling jaunt from Travels with Charley:


William Least Heat Moon’s roundabout roamings in Blue Highways:


The ill-fated wanderings of  Alexander Supertramp (Chris McCandless), from Krakauer’s Into the Wild:


The Pequod’s journey on the high seas in Moby Dick:


And Phileas Fogg’s mad race across the globe in Around the World in 80 Days:


What other great literary maps are we missing?
