Review:

"Pure delight, a pungent potpourri of places and people interspersed with bittersweet essays on everything from the emotional difficulties of growing old to the reasons why giant sequoias arouse such awe." --The New York Times Book Review

"Profound, sympathetic, often angry . . . an honest moving book by one of our great writers." --The San Francisco Examiner

"This is superior Steinbeck--a muscular, evocative report of a journey of rediscovery." --John Barkham, Saturday Review Syndicate

"The eager, sensuous pages in which he writes about what he found and whom he encountered frame a picture of our human nature in the twentieth century which will not soon be surpassed." --Edward Weeks, The Atlantic Monthly
