Description

Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck left an indelible mark on the American literary canon. Set in Steinbeck's native California, To a God Unknown explores the mystical connections between a man and his land. Soon after Joseph Wayne follows his dead father's dream of starting a farm, he begins to believe his father's spirit occupies a massive tree on the property. But when the tree is destroyed and drought descends on the land, Joseph finds himself spiritually adrift.

Professional reviews

"Set in CaliforniaÕs Central Valley, SteinbeckÕs novel tells the story of four brothers from Vermont who settle in the West. Mysterious Joseph, loyal Thomas, pious Burton, and rebellious Benjamin all contribute an individual influence to the land. Jonathan DavisÕs narrative style mimics SteinbeckÕs unhurried prose. Filled with environmental description, the novel profits from DavisÕs calm, detailed narration. His vocal characterizations are equally well suited to the work. The protagonist, Joseph, is portrayed in a firm, almost monotone voice, characteristic of his thoughtful nature. Davis also skillfully portrays Hispanic and regional accents. His carefully executed reading enhances SteinbeckÕs unique narrative voice. D.M.W. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
