It includes every place-name reference in 12 books about cross-country travel, from Mark Twain’s Roughing It(1872) to Cheryl Strayed’s Wild (2012), and maps the authors’ routes on top of one another. You can track an individual writer’s descriptions of the landscape as they traveled across it, or you can zoom in…
