    In September 1960, John Steinbeck and his poodle, Charley, embarked on a journey across America, from small towns to growing cities to glorious wilderness oases. Travels with Charley is animated by Steinbeck’s attention to the specific details of the natural world and his sense of how the lives of people are intimately connected to the rhythms of nature—to weather, geography, the cycles of the seasons. His keen ear for the transactions among people is evident, too, as he records the interests and obsessions that preoccupy the Americans he encounters along the way.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Travels with Charley in Search of America to be better than the print version?

    Worth "reading"... Story captures your wunderlust in the first few minutes. Steinbeck lives on Long Island, but longs to visit the USA and its people. Charlie, his poodle, is the perfect, silent traveling companion. The people Steinbeck meets along the way provide the adventure.If you're ever in Salinas, you have to visit the National Steinbeck Center. Rocinante was on exhibit the last time I was there. It was Steinbeck's vessel for his journey of a lifetime.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rocinante, because the mighty machine provided the adventure.


    Have you listened to any of Gary Sinise’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Gary has a great voice and provides colorful reflection on the author's words.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Steinbeck starting out and finding his stuff scattered all over Rocinante. Out of choas came order?
