This little book shares the adventures of Robert Louis Stevenson and his donkey Modestine during their journey through the Cevennes region of France RLS had no donkey driving experience before this trip and if I had endured his terrible first days in person I would have run screaming into the forest never to return But he persevered and with the kindly help of a local peasant who made him a goad to encourage dear Modestine in her forward motion the rest of the trip was not nearly so horrific for any of usI got mad at RLS once when after a few days of being out on the road unloading and loading Modestine a peasant points out to him the sores between her legs and under her tail Sores which the peasant said came from being overloaded Now I understand a rookie donkey driver not comprehending things like balancing a load properly but how can anyone not notice gallsores when they are tying straps and supposedly caring for the poor beast in their down time But RLS definitely made up for that when he admitted to feeding Modestine her bread by hand and he picked a lot of chestnut leaves for her one night and even shed unashamed tears after he sold her at the end of his walk RLS embraced every moment of his trip sleeping under the stars at times that was okay except for when he stayed under some chestnut trees one night and later learned that the noises he heard had been rats and other times mixing with the locals at the village inn He visited Le Pont de Montvert of bloody memory and why was the memory bloody It was the center of a rebellion by French Protestants against the Catholics of the time this war was called the rebellion of the Camisards for the linen shirts the Protestants wore I don t remember uite so much detail about the religious history from the last time I read this book but it was uite a few years ago and most likely I did not pay much attention to those sections I found them much interesting this time around especially since RLS seemed to feel that the people had learned to get along live together and respect each other even with their different religions Wouldn t it be nice if the whole world today could do the same
