A pioneer in travel literature, Travels with a donkey in the Cevennes is Robert Louis Stevenson's account of his 12 day journey through Cevennes, France. He suffered from ill health for much of his life, and this was his opportunity for a long desired adventure. Accompanied by a stubborn donkey, Modestine, Stevenson takes a serious note at times and at others, regales with tales of his encounters. Very entertaining indeed.
