American Road Trips, Riel articles & publicity — By on August 31, 2009 at 7:15 am

In May, I introduced you to the possibilities of a road trip through literary New England. It seems an ideal combination of activities for lovers of both travel and literature. Well, I figured it was time to explore a similar journey, only this time on the West Coast. So now I present to you a road trip through literary California. It takes you to the homes of six authors, from John Steinbeck to Jack London, while also delving into the life and times of the San Francisco Beats. Along the way you’ll get to sample some stunning scenery, as well, including the Big Sur coast and the wine region of Sonoma County.

I published the full article on You can read my description of the journey here, and use this Google map to follow along or to plot your own version of this trip.
