Literary Maps for Young Adult Literature.
Snodgrass, Mary Ellen
The activities presented in this handbook are designed to help students envision the locations and landmarks of sites along journeys described in popular young adult literature (e.g., "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,""Born Free,""The Call of the Wild,""Catcher in the Rye,""I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,""The Island of the Blue Dolphins,""Lost Horizon," and "To Sir, with Love"). The resource links more than 30 works of fiction, nonfiction, and travelogues to geography. Titles selected are designed to appeal to a spectrum of interests and include international geographic sites. Each entry lists title, author, genre, and date of publication and gives a brief geographical summary. Included are itemized itineraries and multiple maps--each with label routes and insets to delineate the terrain featured in the book. A list of books for further reading is provided. Location and subject indexes conclude the book. (MM)
