Steinbeck’s ‘Travels With Charley’ Gets a Fact-Checking - NYTimes.com

In the fall of 1960 an ailing, out-of-sorts John Steinbeck, pretty much depleted as a novelist, decided that his problem was he had lost touch with America. He outfitted a three-quarter-ton pickup truck as a sort of land yacht and set off from his home in Sag Harbor, N.Y., with his French poodle, Charley, to drive cross-country. The idea was that he would travel alone, stay at campgrounds and reconnect himself with the country by talking to the locals he met along the way.
John Steinbeck and Charley - "Travels with Charley: In Search of America" is a travelogue written by author John Steinbeck. It recounts tales of a 1960 road trip with his French standard poodle, Charley, around the US.
Author John Steinbeck with his standard Poodle, Charley whom he portrayed so brilliantly in his 1962 non-fiction book - 'Travels With Charley'
"... I took one companion on my journey – an old French gentleman poodle known as Charley." - John Steinbeck, Travels With Charley

Why Did the Author Write It? - Author's Purpose Anchor Chart.
Author's Purpose (for reading and writing) This is a better way than those silly PIE charts that I found. I think my fifth graders would respond to this.
Author's purpose - how about because they were hungry and were hoping to make a couple bucks? As an English minor I would have to say that college English was the first time English classes made sense all the time.
