He outfought a hurricane in New York and drank cognac in Maine with a family of migrant farm workers.

Read this book awhile ago and really enjoyed it. I especially like Steinbeck's writing and his observations of the places and people he encounters.

I look forward to reading this book at some point. It has been on my "maybe I will read that next" list for a while but when I went to look for it on the shelf I would be distracted by something else. Turns out I was a little ahead of myself thinking it would be on the shelf to begin with.
