Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes
Wasn\'t sure I had made a good choice with this one until I started reading and couldn\'t put it down. Was drawn to the question as to whether where he was travelling was the subject or RLS the man. Some beautiful descriptive passges, an interesting relationship with the donkey but more interesting about the man himself, his personality and being very much a product of his time. His comments about some of the people he met on the way are great. And totally unexpected was the level of humour.
