9780140053203: Travels with Charley: In Search of America

In 1960, when he was almost 60 years old, John Steinbeck set out to rediscover his native land. Accompanied only by a distinguished french poodle named Charley, he travelled across the United States in a three-quarter-ton pick-up truck equipped with a miniature ship's cabin and named Rocinante. His course took him through almost forty states. He saw things that made him proud, angry, sympathetic and elated, which he examined with both love and critical accuracy.

Product Description:

Travels with Charley With his dog Charley, John Steinbeck set out in his truck to explore and experience America in the 1960s. As he talked with all kinds of people, he sadly noted the passing of region speech, fell in love with Montana, and was appalled by racism in New Orleans.

Product Description:

In 1958 Steinbeck stocked up a camper van and set off on a journey through nearly 40 states of the USA. Travelling alone with his dog and generally unrecognized, he was able to renew an intimate knowledge of the grass roots of American life that had underpinned his writing.
