Getting to Know the Conductor

Good morning everybody and thank you for choosing Traveler’s Guide to American Literature.  My name is Devyn and I will be your conductor for this journey.  Along the way we will be looking at American Literature for the reasons as to why people traveled, where people traveled and how people traveled (just a hint it was not always for a vacation!).

Now what makes me so qualified to take you fine folks on this trip you may ask.  Well I am a fourth year university student at Trent in Oshawa and the purpose of this journey is to educate you fine folks on the use of travel in American Literature for my American Literature course.  Not to worry however!  I have completed an American Literature course before so I do have my beginner’s license and I can assure you no harm will come to any of you (as this here blog affects my grade and I am hoping for a good one!).

Now if I could ask everyone to put their chairs in the upright position and return your trays to the locked position we will begin this journey momentarily.
