On the road with Steinbeck
Placeholder Image
Last week we talked about John Steinbeck’s 1960 journey across America. Today I’ll share a few stories about the months-long trip he took. Steinbeck, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “The Grapes of Wrath” and many more novels, left his Long Island, N. Y. home 50 years ago this month in a pickup camper he named Rocinante, after the horse owned by Don Quixote in Cervantes’ book of the same name.
