When the friend abandoned the story line, Steinbeck took it up and wrote and rewrote for over four years, shifting the setting to the San Antonio Valley, near King City, where Steinbeck spent some time as a teenager.
This powerful, evocative novel was eventually published in The Arthurian tales were his model. In , the novella was adapted as a film starring Spencer Tracy and Hedy Lamarr. The first began as a biography of a strike organizer; Steinbeck ended up writing a novel, however, a searing account of a strike in a California apple orchard. Workers and farmers are pitted against one another, with the communist organizers ruthlessly exploiting the conflict. The two friends depend on one another in a world where most working men are lonely, moving from job to job.

Carol went along, although she is scarcely mentioned in the subsequent book. In , Carol and John separated, divorcing in Steinbeck was a patriot, as were many Americans after Pearl Harbor, as the U.
He imagined what it would be like to live in a town where freedoms disappeared—and to many Europeans, he seemed to have captured the terror of Nazi occupation. Steinbeck threw himself into the war effort, and his letters to Gwyn during this period reflect his patriotism as well as fascination with ordinary lives:. Hell, I thought I was building the war up. Certainly we were thinking more universally.
While traveling to Mexico to help with the film adaptation of the novel, Steinbeck became inspired by the story of Emiliano Zapata, and subsequently wrote a screenplay based on his life. Ed Ricketts had been hit by a train while attempting to cross the tracks in Monterey.
