Knowing he was dying, John Steinbeck customized a camper-truck and dubbed it Rocinante after Don Quixote's horse. With his dog Charley (Steinbeck's own Sancho Panza) riding along, the melancholic writer circumnavigates the country. This travelogue captures a 1960s America in the Nobel Prize-winning prose that has proven timeless.
