My Dear Sidney Colvin, The journey which this little book is to describe was very agreeable and fortunate for me. After an uncouth beginning, I had the best of luck to the end. But we are all travellers in what John Bunyan calls the wilderness of this world-all, too, travellers with a donkey: and the best that we find in our travels is an honest friend. He is a fortunate voyager who finds many. We travel, indeed, to find them. They are the end and the reward of life. They keep us worthy of ourselves; and when we are alone, we are only nearer to the absent. Every book is, in an intimate sense, a circular letter to the friends of him who writes it. They alone take his meaning; they find private messages, assurances of love, and expressions of gratitude, dropped for them in every corner. The public is but a generous patron who defrays the postage. Yet though the letter is directed to all, we have an old and kindly custom of addressing it on the outside to one. Of what shall a man be proud, if he is not proud of his friends? And so, my dear Sidney Colvin, it is with pride that I sign myself affectionately yours, R. L. S.

This volume of Stevenson's travel writings includes his first published book "An Island Voyage" (1878) - a vivid account of a canoe voyage in Belgium and France in two sail-powered skiffs, named "Cigarette" and "Arethusa" - and Stevenson's popular description of a tour with his recalcitrant donkey Modestine, "Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes" (1879). Stevenson's natural affinity for France, his appreciation of its landscape, and his enthusiasm for the French way of life are borne out by these works.

In 1878 Robert Louis Stevenson escaped from his numerous troubles poor health, tormented love, inadequate funds by embarking on a journey through the Cévennes in France, accompanied by Modestine, a rather single-minded donkey. The notebook Stevenson kept during this time became Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes, a highly entertaining account of the French and their country. The Amateur Emigrant describes his travels to and around America: the crowded weeks in steerage, the cross-country train journey. Filled with sharp-eyed observations, it brilliantly conveys Stevenson s perceptions of America and the Americans. Together, these writings reveal as much about the traveler as the places he travels to.

Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in French, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not translated on a page, chances are that it has been translated on a previous page.

As a human document it astounds me . . . and I marvel at its literary qualities . . . Nothing can shadow the stature of this book or how enriched Ive been by reading it, or my admiration for Christopher Rushs achievement. It is to be treasured not just on the page, but in the heart and spirit Stewart Conn, Poet Laureate of Scotland An inspired Mozartian requiem, beautiful and terrible, wonderful and awful . . . As powerful a piece of writing as you are likely to read this year . . . [Christopher Rushs] books stick in the mind when others fade from the memory the instant one puts them down. A lyrical, passionate, sensuous writer . . . Think of George Mackay Brown, or Dylan Thomas The Sunday Herald A powerful work of travel writing ....a singularly unforgettable travel memoir. Very highly recommended. To Travel Hopefully is a thoroughly "reader friendly," armchair travelogue. -The Midwest Book Review
