    1. This first volume of the Cambridge History of American Literature (Colonial and Revolutionary Literature, Early National Literature: Part I) covers American literature from it's inception with the documented exploits of the travelers and explorers to first map the region, through to the transcendentalism movement and the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson. A very in-depth and informative work.
