Introduction: Travels in the Old South I, II, III: 1607-1860
This collection, from Thomas D. Clarks Travels in the Old South I, II, III, covers what Clark called "the important years1607-1860when travelers came visiting the Colonies." Clark, in the editors preface to Volume I, remarks, "Almost all historians who have tried to discover the past as it actually was or to gain a feeling of being at home in the precise contemporary scene, have used travel accounts for sources."
For students of the history of individual Southern states, agriculture and industry, social life and customs, folklore and any other aspect of southern tradition, this is an indispensable research tool.
