Viewing: John Steinbeck - View all posts

ThrowBackThursday - On the Road with John and Charley 

Looking back on a blog post of recent yesteryear (and bringing it over from the old website for further reference):

A recent short book I thoroughly enjoyed, especially since I do so much travel (more so by bus than by plane), was: "Travels With Charley: In Search Of America" by John Steinbeck.  It reads like a autobiographical slice of his life in the early 60's - very cool.  He writes:

"The Mojave is a big desert and a frightening one.  It's as though nature tested a man for endurance and constancy to prove whether he was good enough to get to California."
Guess I've passed the test many times! How about you?
