Hi Mia,

This is not a biography but I wanted to mention Steinbeck's book, Travels With Charley. It is a travelogue he wrote during a 1960 trip around America that he took with his dog. I believe Steinbeck planned the trip after he learned he was dying and he wanted to see America one last time. The book is very introspective and I learned a lot about Steinbeck and his beliefs while reading this book.
