Have you ever wanted to see for yourself? What does that place just East of Eden look like? Did John Steinbeck do Salinas Ca. justice? How about Steinbeck's book Travels with Charlie or Sea of Cortez? Would you consider following his path on land or sea?
Do you remember the tree that Jo and Amy and Beth sat under to read on a warm summer afternoon in Little Women. Would Louisa May Alcott's description of the house near Concord, Massachusetts be beautiful in reality?
Do you have a "bucket list" of story locations that you want to see? I know I do...but that will be for another day.
