✏Travels with Charley Book Summary : In 1960, when he was almost sixty years old, John Steinbeck set out to rediscover his native land. He felt that he might have lost touch with its sights, sounds and the essence of its people. Accompanied only by his dog, Charley, he travelled all across the United States in a pick-up truck. His journey took him through almost forty states, and he saw things that made him proud, angry, sympathetic and elated. All that he saw and experienced is described with remarkable honesty and insight. Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck is remembered as one of the greatest and best-loved American writers of the twentieth century. During the 1930s, his works included The Red Pony, Pastures of Heaven, Tortilla Flat, In Dubious Battle, and Of Mice and Men. The Grapes of Wrath, published in 1939, earned him a Pulitzer Prize. In 1962, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

✏Travels with Charley in Search of America Book Summary : An intimate journey across and in search of America, as told by one of its most beloved writers, in a deluxe centennial edition In September 1960, John Steinbeck embarked on a journey across America. He felt that he might have lost touch with the country, with its speech, the smell of its grass and trees, its color and quality of light, the pulse of its people. To reassure himself, he set out on a voyage of rediscovery of the American identity, accompanied by a distinguished French poodle named Charley; and riding in a three-quarter-ton pickup truck named Rocinante. His course took him through almost forty states: northward from Long Island to Maine; through the Midwest to Chicago; onward by way of Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana (with which he fell in love), and Idaho to Seattle, south to San Francisco and his birthplace, Salinas; eastward through the Mojave, New Mexico, Arizona, to the vast hospitality of Texas, to New Orleans and a shocking drama of desegregation; finally, on the last leg, through Alabama, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey to New York. Travels with Charley in Search of America is an intimate look at one of America's most beloved writers in the later years of his life—a self-portrait of a man who never wrote an explicit autobiography. Written during a time of upheaval and racial tension in the South—which Steinbeck witnessed firsthand—Travels with Charley is a stunning evocation of America on the eve of a tumultuous decade. This Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition also features French flaps and deckle-edged paper.

✏John Steinbeck s Nonfiction Revisited Book Summary : Best known as a novelist - especially for The Grapes of Wrath, his heartfelt portrayal of disenfranchised dustbowl farmers in the 1930s - John Steinbeck nonetheless devoted a good portion of his literary energies to nonfiction. In this study, Warren French looks at the entire body of Steinbeck's nonfiction writing - journalism, essays, travelogues - both in its own right and in its capacity to illuminate the progress, and decline, of Steinbeck's entire writing career. The topics of Steinbeck's nonfiction evince both his personal interests and, particularly earlier on, the times he lived in. There are his dispatches for the New York Herald Tribune from the European war zone during World War II, collected in Once There Was a War (1959), and his record of the expedition to the Gulf of California with friend and biologist Ed Ricketts to collect samples of marine life (reflecting his passing interest in a science career), published as Sea of Cortez (1941). And there are travelogues: A Russian Journal (1948), his account of postwar life in parts of Eastern Europe, and Travels with Charley in Search of America (1962), recollections of a cross-country trip taken with his dog Charley, published the same year that Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize in literature. In what was to be his last major work, America and Americans (1966), a collection of photographs of the country and its people with accompanying commentary by Steinbeck, the prose, though beautiful, gives the impression of a man out of sorts with the world in which he finds himself. America and Americans, French writes, shows Steinbeck to be less a witness to the powerful cultural and social changes transpiring around him in the 1960s than an elegiac vessel from the not-so-distant past.
