We are all travelers in the 'wilderness of the world' - travelers with a donkey. So Robert Louis Stevenson wrote to a friend on completing this enchanting account of a journey in rural France in 1878. Alone with his pack-donkey Modestine, and showing total disregard for discomfort, Stevenson relishes to the full his walking tour of the Cevennes. Freedom was the important thing: I bless God that I was free to wander, free to hope, and free to love. This diary will find many kindred spirits. Download and start listening now!

    " There's a lot less bonding with the donkey Modestine than Amazon.com reviews would have you believe. "

    " A low-key, almost self-deprecating little travel story, written quite early in his career before Stevenson becme well known. Plenty of local color, a bit of gentle humor. An easy fireside read but somewhat dated by now. "

    " Best travel book I've ever read? Definitely one of the top three. Stevenson can write, he is witty, he is intelligent, which is more than I can say for the travel writing I've read by much of today's young crop of hardy souls. Oh, and it is free on the Kindle, what more could you want? "

    " Last read this for A-level in about 1959. Very enjoyable read. "
