    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.

    Oh! Susanna, do not cry for me;
    I come from Alabama with my banjo on my knee.

    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
