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 (eigentlich Robert Levis Balfour Stevenson) wurde am 13.11.1850 in Edinburgh geboren. Der Vater war Leuchtturmbaumeister, das wollte auch der Sohn werden. Er hatte jedoch ein Lungenleiden und studierte daher Jura von 1871-1875. Er arbeitete jedoch nicht als Rechtsanwalt sondern wurde freier Schriftsteller, vergeblich ein Klima suchend, das sein Lungenleiden heilte. Seit 1888 lebte er auf Samoa, wo er bei den Eingeborenen in hohem Ansehen stand. Er starb am 03.12.1894 im Haus Vailima bei Apia (Westsamoa).
