Editorial Reviews

B&N - Kelsey Dayton
"Travels With Max" begins at Zeigler's home in Jackson...then takes readers across the country with him and his dog Max. The pages are full of anecdotes about the many people Zeigler meets along the way, from Kansas to Virginia to California.

His encounters with people...helped illuminate the landscape of America. The book is peppered with facts about Steinbeck...Zeigler weaves in pieces of his (Steinbeck's) life and writing...(and) highlights the differences of the time...
