It's hard to find a great travel writing, but here it is. One of the reasons for this is that many travel articles are considered natural or narrative non-fiction. One of the reasons for this is that the area is competitive because many good authors are competing in a relatively small market. But there is a great travel literature, and here is my list of the top ten travel novels I've read in the past few years.
10) Painted Deserts by Donald Miller This is what I actually found in the "Christian Non-Fiction" section, which could be unfair. It is not questionable that Miller is a Christian, but he is primarily and chiefly writer, does not preach, and his own faith, the causes of existence, who and what is his or her increasingly questioning the fantastic search for souls from the Beat generation's travel writings. Miller's idea of a trip is great in the moments of beauty, through the need for good roadmap music, and the moments of disturbances and fears freely like any other part of the journey.  Early reading of the book may be difficult because the first few chapters have a great Western perspective, living conditions and poverty, the kind of contempt that you do not want to read about I am glad to have read the rest because, as the "painted deserts", the "Holy cow" is about the author's journey. Sarah develops and changes his chapter in the chapter as it reveals the "too clever" contemptuous character of the atheist to fall the superstition, and he opens it, travels to India and samples all the various religious beliefs and practices, the humble theist who learns happiness, learns to grow and learns that foreign cultures can offer a lot to the open traveler.  John Krakauer [In The Wild] I first saw this book in a Barnes and Noble in one of the tables. I was in Alaska for a winter break and I I went to Owa. He picked up the book, sat down and read the whole work at a meeting. Travel book, journalist book, natural book, adventure book – whatever you call it, it's a chill out of a reading, and the debate that this book causes is deep and passionate. As a migrating traveler, I understand that the protagonist feels Alaszkan, I mean the natural angle of irritation, the lack of understanding that nature is brutal, and especially Alaska must be respected.
7) Dark Star Safari: Overland From Cairo to Cape Town, Paul Theroux Paul Theroux is best placed in the "Dark Star Safar" where observation and dry ghost are ready. Paul takes Africa for a long time over the overcrowded rattletrap bus, climbing plant, cattle, armed convoy, compartment, and train on a difficult journey that is hard to forget. There are moments of beauty, but there are still many moments of misery and danger. This is an African narrative that goes beyond the skin and boldly examines the deepest core of the "Dark Continent".
6) Blue Freeways: A trip to America, William Lessest Heat -Moon. This is an autobiographical journey that Heat-Mean has brought in 1978. After breaking away from his wife and losing work, the Heat-Moon decided to travel around the United States, insisting on the "Blue Highways" that the roads connecting the countryside (which were pulled on the blue Rand McNally atlases) . So the Heat-Moon installs its "Ghost Dancing" van, and a 3-month conscientious tour starts in the United States. The book, the 13,000-mile journey and the people along the way, avoids cities and interstates avoiding fast foods and mapping local American culture to a journey that is as wonderful as it was when it first traveled.
5) The Lost Continent, Bill Bryson There are a number of fantastic Bill Bryson's books there and any of them could be here. "The Lost Continent" Bryson's visit to America, visiting some common places (the big canyon), but revealing the back roads and looking for the common knowledge that helps him remember home.  Wanderlust: Real-Life Tales of Adventure and Romance Pico Iyer Probably one of the most recent collection of travel articles, this collection is named Pico Iyer who helped in editing the collection. These stories come from Salon.com's "Wanderlust" section and create a diverse travel literature set that keeps the reader from one writer to another.  Peter Jenkins Walking in America This is one of the most up-to-date classics of travel literature, as Peter Jenkins remembers the New Orleans 1973-1975 walking tour of New York. For many readers this is a rare travel book that captures you and keeps you. Peter Jenkins, known as a travel writer who goes anywhere, including Alaska and China, says, "I started looking for myself and my country and found both of them." This sums up what travel writing should be.
2) John Steinbeck Travels with Charlie This is a novel that helped John Steinbeck win the Nobel Prize in Literature. "Trips with Charlie" is a fantastic travel narrative that is at the center of travel, the essence of travel, and the strange confrontation and recognition that the places and people they remember have disappeared. As he recounts the places of his youth, based on many of his books, he realizes that he has seen his old friends feel so uncomfortable that he is there when he is there. A great story about travel, home, grief in lost history, aging, and America – this is for every reader to read.  The Dharma Bums, Jack Kerouac The beat generation was full of great travel narratives, and Jack Kerouac was the master of the powerful, busy, passionate language that opened stories as some have ever succeeded. While Kerouac's "Travel on the Road" most frequently points to travel narrative, "Dharma Bums" is a better book. Passion, interesting characters and stories, the passionate language and the powerful prose that made beat generation writers popular, this Kerouac book is extraordinary and deserves its first place.
