Oklahoma to California, 2600km, $420, 30 days, 5 bikes, 2 guitars and one of the most influential novels of the 20th century - this is the story of adventure, human connection, and an in-depth look at inequality and disenfranchisement in today's America told through the lens of John Steinbeck's 'The Grapes of Wrath'.
