    I love Steinbeck Pure and simple He seems incapable of lapses in writing and has an uncanny ability to captivate his readers Okay, he taps into an innate geographical bias California born and bred, I relish visiting those locales around Monterey and the San Joaquin Valley that Steinbeck describes in his novels Plus he attended Stanford a decade or so after ...

    Not to be confused with the edition called The Log From the Sea of Cortez, this book is a synthesis of Steinbeck s observations while traveling the Sea of Cortez, philosophical musings, and explorations into the biological life of the ocean It integrates the specimen notes of Ed Ricketts marine biologist with Steinbeck s own journal I read most of it in anticipation of my week in San Carlos, which is featured in Steinbeck s travels Despite bogging down a few times the thing is lengthy t Not to be confused with the edition called The Log From the Sea of Cortez, this book is a synthesis of Steinbeck s observations while traveling the Sea of Cortez, philosophical musings, and explorations into the biological life of the ocean It integrates the specimen notes of Ed Ricketts marine biologist with Steinbeck s own journal I read most of it in anticipation of my week in San Carlos, which is featured in Steinbeck s travels Despite bogging down a few t...
