I personally wouldn't say it does, but am sure that Thoreau is a notable travel writer on the basis of other things I've read by him, such as The Maine Woods, Cape Cod, A Yankee in Canada, etc. The oldest form of travel is walking, and Thoreau's a great contributor to the literature thereof.could probably put Thoreau in there as well. Does Walden count as travel lit?
Someone should take the letters that C. S. Lewis wrote about his walking tours and publish them in a book, perhaps with pictures or photos. He's really very good in this genre.
