By John Steinbeck
An intimate trip throughout the USA, as informed by way of one in every of its such a lot cherished writers
To pay attention the speech of the true the USA, to sniff the grass and the timber, to work out the colours and the light—these have been John Steinbeck's objectives as he set out, on the age of fifty-eight, to rediscover the rustic he have been writing approximately for thus many years.
With Charley, his French poodle, Steinbeck drives the interstates and the rustic roads, dines with truckers, encounters bears at Yellowstone and previous associates in San Francisco. alongside the way in which he displays at the American personality, racial hostility, the actual kind of American loneliness he reveals virtually in every single place, and the unforeseen kindness of strangers.
