Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes and the Amateur Emigrant
by Robert Louis Stevenson and Christopher Maclachlan


Overview - 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.  Read more...
