Synopsis: In 1878, famed author Robert Louis Stevenson set out to explore the remote Cevennes mountains of France. The author of numerous adventure classics, Stevenson determined to travel alone, unless you count the infamous Modestine among his companions? This stubborn and manipulative pack-donkey alternately hampered and hurried Stevenson’s progress through the lovely landscape of southern France. First published in 1879, Stevenson’s account of his travels reflect his need for a journey in search of personal peace and professional escape. Though he travelled light, he carried the burdens of inspiration packed carefully away in Modestine’s pack-saddle. Although it is not remembered as being a dangerous expedition, this trip produced famous results. It was while he was lodging at the famed Trappist Monastery of Notre Dame des Neiges, that Stevenson derived the inspiration for his beloved poem, “Our Lady of the Snows.” Out of print for too long, “Travels with a Donkey” is truly a neglected travel classic.

Review: Most of the problems travelers encounter have to do with transportation. On a 12-day trek through the Cevennes, Stevenson's cross to bear was Modestine, a stubborn, manipulative donkey he could never quite get the better of. After many humorous trials and tribulations, Stevenson found that his disdain for the creature had turned to love, and at the end of the trip he said goodbye with much regret. Written in just a few months when he was in his late twenties, the publication was initially a means to earn a quick buck. Little did Stevenson know that his Modestine would become one of the great characters in travel literature.
