Travels with Charley in Search of America
An intimate journey across America, as told by one of its most beloved writers
To hear the speech of the real America, to smell the grass and the trees, to see the colors and the light-these were John Steinbeck's goals as he set out, at the age of fifty-eight, to rediscover the country he had been writing about for so many years.
With Charley, his French poodle, Steinbeck drives the interstates and the country roads, dines with truckers, encounters bears at Yellowstone and old friends in San Francisco. Along the way he reflects on the American character, racial hostility, the particular form of American loneliness he finds almost everywhere, and the unexpected kindness of strangers

Motorcycle Journeys Through North America
A guide for choosing and planning unforgettable motorcycle journeys
Simply the creation of this book is impressive! Dale Coyner decided to take a look-see at nearly all of the United States, and a goodly part of Canada, and figure out where the best rides are. That is a lot of real estate to cover, and probably some five million miles of possible roads. The book is not really a guide, more like a book of previews - like movie previews, to give you a taste of what a longer view might be like ...armchair reading - and viewing, with some 350 pictures, many of which are enough to get a rider to put his (or her) toothbrush in the tankbag and take off to any number of possible destinations.
How do you decide where to go on that three-day, three-week, three-month vacation? Some of us do the tried and true, go to places we're familiar with, but there is always that desire to expand our horizons, see new vistas, find new roads, eat new food. . . .Dale is an experienced traveler and has several other books about motorcycle touring to his credit, includingThe Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel.
