Historian Daniel Feller, author of The Jacksonian Promise, introduces the narrative, identifies the major characters, and provides an index for easy use.
Retrospect of Western Travel (1838) was the second major book Martineau produced about her American travels. Feller's abridgement of Martineau's work omits thirteen chapters of scenic description and biography to focus on her firsthand observations. In Society in America, (1837), she tested the Americans' commitment to democracy, finding that it fell short only on their attachment to slavery and their confinement of women to the domestic sphere. Martineau's travels take her from her transatlantic ship to New York City and West Point. She attends three weddings, many church services, and several holidays, including Thanksgiving Day and Christmas.
