Overview

In AN INLAND VOYAGE, Stevenson is at his best. The book was inspired by a canoe trip he made with a friend in 1876 on the rivers of northern France. As we travel with him, we meet a rich variety of characters, portrayed with unspoiled relish by the vivacious and energetic young author. It is charming to discover that boat clubs flourished on the continent a century ago, and that friendship and hospitality were as common among sportsmen then as they are today.

Meet the Author

Robert Louis Stevenson was not only a gifted writer, he was also an indefatigable traveller. His thirst for adventure was formed by his boyhood visits to remote Scottish lighthouses, and he spent most of his life fleeing the rigours of cold climes and social orthodoxy. Along the way he travelled through France, Belgium, America, and the South Pacific.
