The second — and most extensive — English-language edition of this important narrative of travel in the United States and Canada in the last decade of the eighteenth century, after the French first edition and the abridged English translation of the previous year.

Fleeing to England during the French Revolution, Rochefoucauld travelled to the United States, touring much of the northern United States and Upper Canada. Crossing the Niagara River to Fort Erie and Fort Chippawa, he travelled to Newark, Canada to visit Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe and his comments on Upper Canada are particularly valuable. After his return to Philadelphia, he travelled through the south, including to Virginia where he spent a week at Monticello with Thomas Jefferson.

The general map of the United States is noted for including the proposed state of Franklinia in eastern Tennessee, as well as the territory Morgania west of the Mississippi.
