The John Steinbeck Map of America features popular images
from Steinbeck's novels such as Tortilla Flat (1935), The
Grapes of Wrath (1939), and The Pearl (1947).
The outline of the map shows the route of Travels with Charley (1962),
and the central portion consists of detailed street maps of the
California towns of Salinas and
Monterey, where Steinbeck lived and set some of his works. Numbers
on the maps are keyed to lists of events in Steinbeck's novels.
A portrait of the author appears in the upper right corner. Research
and design of the map were done by Molly Maguire, who produced
a series of literary maps in the 1980s.
