An Interview with Tony Horwitz

Granted, A Voyage Long and Strange would probably be a good title for what's been written in this journal lately, but in this case, it's the title of the new book by Pulitzer-winner Tony Horwitz, whose past works include the delightful, thought-provoking, and educational Confederates in the Attic and Blue Latitudes.

In this one, Horwitz spends his time following the trails of the early European explorers through America's various corners:  Leif Erikson in Canada, Columbus in Dominica, Coronado in the Four Corners, de Soto through the Southeast, and so on.  It's a fascinating trip, and his storytelling remains as strong as ever, so I was delighted to get the chance to a) read an advance copy of the book, and b) conduct an email interview with Horwitz himself for The Readerville Journal.

Here's the interview.  Enjoy!
