Description
In 1878, Robert Louis Stevenson was suffering from poor health, struggling to survive on the income derived from his writings, and tormented by his infatuation with Fanny Osbourne, a married American woman. His response was to embark on a journey through the Cevennes with a donkey, Modestine, and a notebook, which he later transformed into Travels with a Donkey. Just a few months after publication, Stevenson was off again - this time crossing the Atlantic and the breadth of America in the hope of being re-united with Fanny, an experience he recorded in The Amateur Emigrant. Both pieces are classics of travel writings, which reveal as much about Stevenson s character as the landscape he travels through.

display_descriptionOne of Robert Louis Stevenson’s earliest published works, Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes is considered a classic of nature literature. Stevenson was in his late 20s in 1878 when he embarked on a 12-day, 120-mile solo hiking journey through France’s sparsely populated Cévennes Mountains. In the book, Stevenson recounts his problems with Modestine, his stubborn donkey. The work is one of the first accounts to present hiking and camping outdoors as a purely recreational activity. It also contains Stevenson’s use of one of the first sleeping bags, which was large and heavy enough to require a donkey for transport.
