Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes
I\'ve been a lifelong fan of RLS, having been brought up on A Child\'s Garden of Verses and Treasure Island etc, so I was looking forward to finding out a bit about the man himself. However I was shocked to realise I didn\'t actually like him very much! I had to keep putting his narrative into historical context, and making allowances for him given the culture/society he had grown up in. I imagine it would be a very interesting time snapshot for anyone who knows that area of France today (I don\'t!). I\'m glad I read it, but I\'m also glad it wasn\'t any longer than the 94 pages in my edition!
