Description
Information
Steinbeck's writing was fuelled by a need to observe things firsthand, whether as a journalist or novelist. The huge success of 'The Grapes Of Wrath' enabled him to travel the world, ceaselessly writing about the great events of each decade.

This collection brings together the greatest of those dispatches - from countries as diverse as Vietnam, Britain, Morocco and Italy. In addition, it reproduces 'America And The Americans', a gripping account of the US in the 1960s based on Steinbeck's observations on racism, moral decline and the environment.

This extremely enjoyable book makes an important point about Steinbeck's oeuvre, showing just how important journalism was to his career as a writer.
