This chapter studies the books and essays of recorded journeys in search of England. It explains how the narrative conventions of gender develop more challenging inquiries into the nature of English modernity. It looks at the two basic premises where the literature of national travel between the First and Second World Wars was founded upon. The chapter determines that the act of travelling in England during the first decades of the twentieth century gave a means of describing the nation in a popular literary genre that emphasised random revelations and identities defined through the rural communities and landscapes.
