Description
An Inland Voyage is an account of a canoeing trip through Belgium and northern France undertaken in 1876, when the author was 36 years old. Stevenson and his companion, Sir Walter Grindlay Simpson each had a kayak style wooden canoe, with a deck and rigged with a sail. Starting in Belgium, then travelling down river in France from Mauberge (near Mons) to Pontoise on the outskirts of Paris, the book paints a charming picture of western Europe in a more innocent age.
