Travels with a Donkey in the C vennes Book Excerpt:

In 1878 Robert Louis Stevenson escaped from his numerous troubles poor health, tormented love, inadequate funds by embarking on a journey through the Cévennes in France, accompanied by Modestine, a rather single-minded donkey. The notebook Stevenson kept during this time became Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes, a highly entertaining account of the French and their country. The Amateur Emigrant describes his travels to and around America: the crowded weeks in steerage, the cross-country train journey. Filled with sharp-eyed observations, it brilliantly conveys Stevenson s perceptions of America and the Americans. Together, these writings reveal as much about the traveler as the places he travels to.

Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes Book Excerpt:

My Dear Sidney Colvin, The journey which this little book is to describe was very agreeable and fortunate for me. After an uncouth beginning, I had the best of luck to the end. But we are all travellers in what John Bunyan calls the wilderness of this world-all, too, travellers with a donkey: and the best that we find in our travels is an honest friend. He is a fortunate voyager who finds many. We travel, indeed, to find them. They are the end and the reward of life. They keep us worthy of ourselves; and when we are alone, we are only nearer to the absent. Every book is, in an intimate sense, a circular letter to the friends of him who writes it. They alone take his meaning; they find private messages, assurances of love, and expressions of gratitude, dropped for them in every corner. The public is but a generous patron who defrays the postage. Yet though the letter is directed to all, we have an old and kindly custom of addressing it on the outside to one. Of what shall a man be proud, if he is not proud of his friends? And so, my dear Sidney Colvin, it is with pride that I sign myself affectionately yours, R. L. S.

Travels with a Donkey in the C vennes Book Excerpt:

Temperament and poor health motivated Robert Louis Stevenson to travel widely throughout his short life, and before he was celebrated as the author of Treasure Island, A Child's Garden of Verses, and other immortal works, he was known for his travelogues. This collection presents some of his finest writing in that vein, starting with "An Inland Voyage." This 1878 chronicle of a canoe journey through Belgium and France charmingly captures the European villages and townspeople of a bygone era. Other selections include "Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes," a humorous account of a mountain trek, and "Forest Notes," a meditation on nature based on visits to the Forest of Fontainebleau near Paris and adjacent artists' colonies. These early writings offer captivating insights into Stevenson's bohemian nature and the wanderlust that sent him from his native Scotland to journeys around the world.

Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes Annotated Book Excerpt:

Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes by Robert Louis Stevenson.(1879) is one of the first published works of Robert Louis Stevenson and is considered a classic pioneer of outdoor literature. Stevenson was in his early 20s and still depended on the help of his parents. Her trip was designed to provide material for publication while allowing her to distance herself from a love story with an American woman that her friends and family did not approve of and that she had returned to her husband in California. Travel 12-day, 200-kilometer (120-mile) accounts of Stevenson's solo excursion touring the sparsely populated and impoverished areas of the Cévennes mountains in south-central France in 1878. The terrain, with its heather-filled slopes Barren rocky, it is often compared to parts of Scotland. The other main character is Modestine, a stubborn and manipulative donkey that he could never dominate. It is one of the first accounts to present hiking and camping outdoors as a recreational activity. It also tells about the launch of one of the first sleeping bags, big and heavy enough to need a donkey to carry. Stevenson is repeatedly mistaken for a street vendor, the usual occupation of someone who travels his way.

Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes Book Excerpt:

Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes recounts Robert Louis Stevenson's 120 mile, 12 day hike, accompanied only by his stubborn and unwieldy donkey, through the Cévennes of south-central France. A pioneering piece of outdoor literature, it is one of Stevenson's earliest works, and one of the earliest accounts of hiking and camping for recreation rather than necessity. Stevenson's route is still popular today; recently when asked why the Scotsman still informs the identity of the Cevennes, a politician and historian of the area remarked Because he showed us the landscape that makes us who we are.

Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes Book Excerpt:

The wild Cevennes region of France forms the backdrop for the pioneering travelogue Travels with a Donkey, written by a young Robert Louis Stevenson. Ever hopeful of encountering the adventure he yearned for and raising much needed finance at the start of his writing career, Stevenson embarked on the 120 mile, 12 day trek and recorded his experiences in this journal. His only companion for the trip was a predictably stubborn donkey called Modestine. Travels with a Donkey gives the reader a rare glimpse of the character of the author, and the journalistic and often comical style of writing is in refreshing contrast to Stevenson's more famous works.
