This chapter examines the evolution of US travel writing about Cuba, beginning with a broad overview, identifying four major periods, eight kinds of writers, five themes, and four itineraries. It then describes the works of writers such as Stephen Crane, who produced forty-six reports from Cuba and Puerto Rico, and a series of short stories, Wounds in the Rain (1900); Erik Saar, an army sergeant who supported the intelligence and interrogation operations at Camp Delta as a linguist and interpreter; and James Yee, a Muslim chaplain at Gitmo.
