To Travel Hopefully
Footsteps In The French Cévennes

To Travel Hopefully; Footsteps In The French C&ecaute;vennes by Christopher Rush

Journeying along the road taken by Robert Louis Stevenson in his famed book Travels with a Donkey, fellow Scot Rush has written a modern classic. Rush tries not to make an ass of of himself on his journey with a donkey named Anatole from Le Monastier-Sur-Gazeille to St. Jean-Du-Gard.

Realizing many of his worst fears, Rush must ford raging streams buck naked, confront menacing hunters, and travel in torrential storms, often hungry and always directionally challenged. But with a little help from his friends Philip Larkin, Miguel de Unamuno, Pablo Neruda, and the Bard of Avon, the Scotsman turns these unfortunate events into a spiritual quest that raises the bar on travel writing. It’s a poetic journey of the spirit through southern France.
