Peter Allen

Travels in the Cévennes

Herefordshire, England: Whittington Press, 1998. Stk. + DC 611 C424 AD64.

In 1879, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes was published. The trek took 11 days and with his long-suffering donkey, Modestine, he covered 120 miles by foot. In the late 1990s, writer and artist Peter Allen journeyed to the Cévennes and re-lived Stevenson’s experience. There is one major difference: Allen traveled by car. Allen also supplied the delightful pochoir illustrations to the text. This is no. 80 of 150 copies.
