About this title


In 1878, Robert Louis Stevenson and his donkey, Modestine, spent twelve days walking in the CÚvennes mountains in France, as he recounted in Travels with a Donkey. His book became an instant hit and the route he took is now the Stevenson Trail, along the GR70 long-distance footpath. Over a period of four years, Hilary Macaskill and Molly Wood attempted to retrace his steps. In the course of several trips they negotiated the entire 212 kilometres of the Stevenson Trail, accompanied by Whiskey the dog and a variety of donkeys. This hilarious account tells of the ups and downs of handling donkeys, getting lost, encounters with some odd people and some particularly memorable meals.

About the Author:

Hilary Macaskill is a journalist and travel writer. She lives in London. Molly Wood is a translator, writer, website manager, botanist and prospective donkey owner and Stevenson Trail tour organizer. She has lived near Uzes in France for over 20 years.
