When John Steinbeck was almost sixty years old, worried that he might have lost touch with the sights, the sounds and the essence of America's people, he 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.
Travels with Charley is an account of legendary American writer John Steinbeck’s journey in 1960, when he was almost sixty years old, to rediscover his native land. Steinbeck 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 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.
