The classic and much loved 19th century travelogue by the author of Treasure Island is the evergreen story of one man's journey across the wild mountainous heart of France in the company of Modestine, a donkey with a personality as broad as the dramatic landscapes of the Languedoc and beyond.
This new edition, on the 130th anniversary of the original publication, was selected by The Times as its top holiday read this year and features a guide for the modern traveller keen to follow in the footsteps (and hoof prints) of the original adventurers. Discover delicious meals in inns and taverns, delightful hotels, guesthouses and even monasteries, with tips for everyone passing through or hiking the original route - whether travelling with a donkey, strolling with the family and friends, walking the dogs, or even exploring the glorious Lozère in a wheelchair. Learn how to hire a donkey, in order to retrace the journey in the spirit of the pioneers. All eating and sleeping listings are sorted by their welcomes for donkeys and dogs. There are even listings of villages on route with masseurs and physiotherapists!
