In Gregory Zeigler’s environmental thriller The Straw That Broke, Lyndall Burke, a vulnerable young scientist and free spirit, gets caught up in a battle between ecoterrorists and corrupt public officials over water in the drought-stricken desert Southwest. Lyndall’s disappearance causes police officer Susan Brand and private investigator Jake Goddard to rush to her aid. Abduction, deceit, and murder threaten to trigger a cataclysm that places the entire region in jeopardy.
In a parched and frightening future in which two-thirds of the world’s population is expected to be living under severe water shortages, The Straw That Broke is a modern allegory, shedding light on the desperate clashes over precious water, and on our imperiled future.

In Search of Steinback’s America fifty years later
In 2009, Gregory Zeigler and his dog Max drove and camped 15,000 miles over 9 weeks, exploring the country and determining what Americans are like today.
Travels With Max offers a retrospective on Steinbeck and his work, as well as an insightful, humorous and upbeat perspective on modern America.
“Through his contemporary snapshot of America 50 years later, author Greg Zeigler has renewed public interest in ‘Travels with Charley’. Zeigler’s stories of his own ‘Travels With Max’ captivate readers, as well as live audiences. He had our Steinbeck Festival audience inspired to take their own journeys across America.” – Colleen Bailey, Director, The National Steinbeck Center
