Steinbeck regarded the heavily forested Santa Lucia Mountains west of his native Salinas Valley with half-fearful awe. "Curious, secret mountains" he called them. Flight is a story of these mountains, a dark story, and a mysterious one, cutting deep into California's troubled past. [from the prospectus]
