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.… (més)

A good book by Stevenson. It is a fictional travelogue that borders on the sentimentally dramatic. All in all, a good effort and a solid novel. ( )

Fairly early in his career, Robert Louis Stevenson published a travel narrative about a two-week hiking trip through the mountains in central France. I love animals, so I was disappointed that the donkey wasn't featured as prominently as the title led me to believe. In fact, Stevenson only reluctantly accepted the need for a donkey to carry the equipment he thought was necessary for his journey. Stevenson's writing didn't persuade me to plan a trip to the Cevennes. I was most interested in the history of the religious wars in this region between Protestants and Catholics. ( )

A bit of a yawner here......started out almost OK and got progressively worse in my book. This is likely an autobiographical smaller work about Stevenson walking thru the mountains of France as an Englishman with a recently purchased donkey he named Modestine. He has apparently no experience with an animal of this ilk and struggles to get his gear in order and the animal to abide. Not totally sure what the purpose of his journey is, other than to contemplate and commune with nature.....under the stars......and in dirty inadequate inns......(yawn - excuse me!). Once the 2 of them find their groove, we go on an on about the scenery......(many chestnut trees in this part of France, apparently).....the steepness of the trails ....(one might expect on a mountain journey).......and the seeming brutal wars fought in the 1700's between the Protestants and the Catholics......I mean with names and dates and tactics and on and on and on......(yawn.....my goodness, I'm sorry!!). None of the history is anything i have any knowledge of, nor do i have any idea where in France he was, because most of the locales, etc. were in French. And then, we reach the chapter entitled 'The Last Day'.....and he gets on a stage and leave Modestine behind......not sure why, but there you have it. Definitely proceed with caution, unless you are a student of what apparently was an unpleasant time to be in the mountains of France with religious unrest. ( )

When attending a non-musical play based on Dr. Jeckel & Mr. Hyde at the Indiana Repertory Theatre that the author of the book married a lady from Indianapolis.
I thought that it would be interesting to learn more about Stevenson.

Travels With a Donkey in the Cevennes is an excellent way to meet him. He shares a personal trek through the southern French countryside - the location of a religious clash over 150 years previously. The Camisard rebellion was a violent reaction by French Protestants in protest to the attempts by Louis XIV to put down the Protestants in favor of Catholics. He reflects on the long term results by visiting residents of the rural area.

So why did he do this as a young man?

"I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilization and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints."

Nearly any younger person could explain this yearning today as long as they are within range of a cell tower. ( )

Il y a beaucoup d'êtres puissants et rien n'est plus puissant que l'homme. Il surpasse, par ses ruses, le monde rural.
Sophocle
Qui a jamais perdu les fers d'un âne sauvage ?
Job
Le chemin était fort fatiguant parmi la poussière et les éclats de pierre ; il n'y avait pas dans toute la contrée une seule auberge ni une boutique de victuailles où se restaurer un peu.

J'aperçois la maison, l'austère communauté - et que suis-je pour que je sois ici ?
Mathew Arnold
Le lit était fait, la chambre prête.
Pour leur veillée personnelle, les étoiles étaient allumées,
L'air était calme, l'eau coulait ;
Il n'était besoin de servante ni de domestique
Quand nous nous levâmes, baudet et moi,
Au vert caravansérail du bon Dieu.

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. [...] 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.
