At age 58 John Steinbeck and his venerable standard poodle, Charley, set out on a journey across America in a camper. For three months these companions traveled the nation, meeting friends, strangers, relatives and immersing themselves in the fabric of the country as it was at that time. Gary Sinise does a grand job giving life to Steinbeck’s words. While his regional accents don’t always hit the mark, the listener is happy to forgive because of the love and respect Sinise accords the Steinbeck story. Eight hours is a lot of listening time, but it passes all too quickly with this wonderful version of an American treasure. S.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 95]
