Book cover
By: (1850-1894)

In "Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes," Robert Louis Stevenson takes readers on a charming and humorous journey through the French countryside. With his trusty donkey Modestine by his side, Stevenson recounts the ups and downs of traveling on foot through the rugged terrain of the Cevennes mountains.

Stevenson's writing is vivid and evocative, transporting readers to the stunning landscapes he encounters along the way. His keen observations of the people he meets and the unique quirks of rural French life add depth and richness to the narrative.

What sets this travelogue apart is Stevenson's witty and self-deprecating sense of humor. His interactions with Modestine, as well as the challenges he faces on the road, are recounted with a light-hearted touch that makes for an entertaining and engaging read.

Overall, "Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes" is a delightful and charming travelogue that offers a window into a bygone era of travel and exploration. Stevenson's lyrical prose and sharp wit make this book a true delight for armchair adventurers and fans of classic literature alike.

Book Description:
A classic of travel writing, this book recounts Stevenson's adventures on an extended walk through uplands and mountains in south-western France. Humorous on his own failings as a traveller, and on his travails with Modestine the self-willed donkey, it is also an exploration of peasant life in an area marked by the violence of the wars of religion. This version includes the fragment "A mountain town in France", originally intended as the opening chapter, but often omitted and published as a separate essay.
