Believing that a good, interesting life is marked by quality, not quantity, John Steinbeck took note of his itchy feet and prepared to travel. He was accompanied by his French poodle, Charley, diplomat and watchdog, across the states of America from Maine to California. Moving through woods and forests, dirt tracks and highways to large cities and wildernesses, Steinbeck observed America and the Americans with a humorous and sometimes sceptical eye. What he sees is a lonely, generous nation too packed with individuals for single judgements. His vision of how the world was changing, however, speaks to us warningly and prophetically through the decades.

Steinbeck's thoughtful insights on human nature.
A great read - easy listening tone.
His description of the crowds opposing the integration of schools in the South in the sixties.
This book was on the Christmas reading list of a "Walking" magazine that I subscribe too. Steinbeck had a brown Standard Poodle dog that he took on a drive through some 40 States - I also have a brown Standard Poodle and that "set the hook"! Terrific book - memorable!
