    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.

    Steinbeck's insights


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Steinbeck kicks the jerk out of Rocinante.


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

    Both moments with hitchikers, the young man and the old man.


    Any additional comments?

    Steinbeck's prose paints such vivid scenes that I felt as if I was in the front seat of Rocinante.
