Professional reviews

"Steinbeck portrays his beloved Salinas Valley, California, in this sweeping montage of short stories. First published in 1932, they're woven together by narrator Sean Runnette in passionate detail. Steinbeck's characterizations are as rich as the fertile valley soil, and Runnette gracefully recounts the many experiences of each generation. The valley offers great opportunity for growing nearly any type of crop or flower, but there are also challenges presented by Mother Nature as well as human strife. As caretaker of these Steinbeck vignettes, classic takes on human struggle, Runnette keeps his voice steady--whether expressing celebration or sorrow. Steinbeck fans will be rewarded by Runnette's care. S.C. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
