9780142000700: 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:

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.

Product Description:

To hear the speech of the real America, to smell the grass and the trees, to see the colors and the light— these were John Steinbeck's goals as he set out, at the age of fifty-eight, to rediscover the country he had been writing about for so many years.
