Bryson has published two travel narratives since A Walk in the Woods. In the first, I'm a Stranger Here Myself (1999), Bryson gives his impressions of America after spending twenty years abroad. Thus, the normal paradigm of the travel narrative is reversed; instead of an American telling of his experience in a foreign land, the expatriate of twenty years relates how he was struck at returning home. The book is infused with Bryson's characteristic wit and insight into the workings of American society.

His most recent book, In a Sunburned Country (2000), fits, finally, into the expected dynamics of a travel narrative. For this work Bryson traveled to Australia where he found both an exotic land and one with striking affinities to his native United States.

He relates the details of his adventure with characteristic wit and humor.
