Synopsis

An intimate journey across America, as told by one of its most beloved writers
 
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.

With Charley, his French poodle, Steinbeck drives the interstates and the country roads, dines with truckers, encounters bears at Yellowstone and old friends in San Francisco. Along the way he reflects on the American character, racial hostility, the particular form of American loneliness he finds almost everywhere, and  the unexpected kindness of strangers.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. So well, in fact, I will read it again some day. I love the character of Charley, the Poodle Although I think this is actually fiction, Steinbecks view of the different parts of America he and Charley traveled through on their journey around the country resonates with my memories of the way we were in the late 1950s. This is a book of simple observations written quite memorably.
