When the War of 1812 ended, Americans went on a traveling binge. Chronicling roughly twenty-five years, and drawing on a range of letters, journals, and newspaper accounts, Oliver, a lecturer and writer on arts and the ancient world, and frequent Mediterranean traveler, follows Ivy League grads through Biblical landscapes, sees Rome through the eyes of aspiring artists, and explores Cairo and the Kalahari.
