Travel Library Short Passage

Robert Louis Stevenson

The works of Robert Louis Stevenson will soon be on line. Why should we travelers care? Because Stevenson penned not only the well known Treasure Island, from which all pirate novels spring, but, as Katherine Ryder says, he was a travel writer and champion of leisure. She suggests we read An Apology for Idlers. Thanks, World Hum for leading me to this item in the New Yorker.

Jane Austen

Granted, Jane Austen is a good read if you are headed to England, but you might not want to pay this much. For one book in your traveler’s library?
