The Americans as They Are

Described in a Tour through the Valley of the Mississippi

by Charles Sealsfield

Austrian-born journalist and novelist Karl Anton Postl (who often wrote under the nom de plume Charles Sealsfield) made a splash with his German-language novels, many of which are regarded as key works of the Romantic era. However, his insightful travelogues and explorations of national identity also proved popular with readers and critics alike. This collection of essays recounts the author's journey through the Mississippi Valley in the early nineteenth century.
