Overview

John Steinbeck was born in Salinas, California in 1902. From early childhood he explored the streets and fields of Monterey County absorbing impressions of the scenes, characters, and events that invest his writing. The rugged mountains with their rounded golden foothills embracing the lush cultivated fields and agricultural and ocean-front communities of Steinbeck Country provide the settings for his extraordinary stories of ordinary people in harmony and in conflict with nature, society, and themselves.

While "all the little towns" Steinbeck described in a letter to George Albee in 1933 now call themselves cities and many of "the farms and the ranches in the wilder hills" are vineyards and resorts, the essence of Steinbeck's Valley of the World remains. From Salinas to the Monterey Peninsula, thorough the Carmel, Salinas, and San Antonio Valleys to the coastline of Big Sur, this souvenir guide takes the reader on a pictorial tour of the landscape that nurtured the writer's values, informed his ideas, and set the stage for Cannery Row, East of Eden, Of Mice and Men, The Red Pony and other classic tales by the Nobel Prize-winning writer.

Steinbeck Country: Exploring the Settings for the Stories includes 125 color photographs, two maps, quotations from the writers work, and descriptive text. Author photographer David A. Laws has contributed articles and photographs to Steinbeck Studies, the Steinbeck Yearbook, and John Steinbeck: A Centennial Tribute and presented at the Steinbeck Centennial Conference in New York and the Annual Steinbeck Festival at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas.
