Length:7 hour 58 minutes
Customer Rating :3.7
A stunning evocation of America about the eve of a tumultuous decade - and a moving elegy for more innocent times.
In September 1960, John Steinbeckand his poodle, Charley, embarked on a journey across United States, from villages to growing cities to splendid wilderness retreats. Travels with Charley is animated by Steinbeck's focus to the particular information on the natural world and his awareness of how the lives of individuals are closely connected to the rhythms of nature - to weather, geography, the cycles of the seasons. His keen ear for the transactions among individuals is clear, too, as he records the passions and fixations that preoccupy the Americans he encounters along the way.
