Temperament and poor health motivated Robert Louis Stevenson to travel widely throughout his short life, and his first published works were travelogues.
This collection presents his finest travel writing: "An Inland Voyage," chronicling a canoe journey from Belgium to France; "Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes," a humorous account of a mountain trek; and "Forest Notes," a meditation on nature from an artists' colony near Paris.
