|Robert Louis Stevenson - Author.|
Few of them make such a mark as this one in the literary world:
It so happens I find myself, a Scotsman and aspiring author, now living in the area in which he spent quite some time and wrote a few stories and essays' about, 'The Cevennes'
Here it was that he went around on a Donkey and wrote later his work:
|Pont du Gard|
I was reminded about this on the news today, because they were talking about a meeting of a Society dealing solely with this route taken by Stevenson. The same route apparantly attracts some 6,500 visitors, yearly to WALK the same way. I have seen at least one who did it in the same way -
|Didn't have a carriage, but it did the trip!|
Stevenson was of course much better known for 'Treasure Island' and a few more books, but he was also a formidable Travel Writer.
As I said, Scotspeople are everywhere and their customs are followed everywhere, even here in the South of France.....!
