Beschreibung:

In 1878, Robert Louis Stevenson was suffering from poor health, struggling to survive on the income derived from his writings, and tormented by his infatuation with Fanny Osbourne, a married American woman. His response was to embark on journeys through Cevennes and America where he wrote 'Travels With a Donkey' and 'The Amateur Emigrant'.
In 1878 Robert Louis Stevenson escaped from his numerous troubles?poor health, tormented love, inadequate funds?by embarking on a journey through the C?vennes in France, accompanied by Modestine, a rather single-minded donkey. The notebook Stevenson kept during this time became "Travels with a Donkey in the C?vennes," a highly entertaining account of the French and their country. "The Amateur Emigrant" describes his travels to and around America: the crowded weeks in steerage, the cross-country train journey. Filled with sharp-eyed observations, it brilliantly conveys Stevenson's perceptions of America and the Americans. Together, these writings reveal as much about the traveler as the places he travels to.
