Description - Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck

In 1960, when he was almost 60 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 a distinguished French poodle named Charley, he travelled all across the United States in a three-quarter-ton pick-up truck equipped with miniature ship's cabin and named Rocinante. His course took him through almost 40 states. He saw things that made him proud, angry, sympathetic and elated, all of which is related with remarkable honesty and insight. The book was was first published in 1962.
