Bill and Ethan’s Tour promotes two unique road books, which are enlightening, provocative, lively first-person accounts of our coast-to-coast travels around the USA. Bill’s book is an “…expose of the fictions and lies that Steinbeck and his editors put into “Travels With Charley.”

His self-published book “Dogging Steinbeck” is a traditional American road book. “My book is an expose of the fictions and lies that Steinbeck and his editors put into “Travels With Charley.” [My book is] not sold at the National Steinbeck Center for obvious reasons.”
