“Retracing Steinbeck’s 10,000 mile journey through America, Randy Wells celebrates Steinbeck's 'Travels with Charley' in this poignant work. Combining his visual impressions of America with Steinbeck’s witty, wise and common sense comments, Randy has created a fitting tribute, both to the author’s timeless book and to the endurance of the American dream.”
Karen Sinsheimer, Curator of Photography, Santa Barbara Museum of Art
“For over a dozen years, Randy has criss-crossed America in pursuit of photographs for this book. His work, provided collectively here for the first time, represents not only the Unites States as a nation, but also the sensibilities of its author.”
Sam Abell, Photographer, National Geographic Magazine
“From the time the reader opens the cover, each page calls to be turned as the fabric of our nation unfolds before one’s eyes. This is a book that celebrates the imagination that created America.”
