”An Inland Voyage” (1878) is one of the most well known R.L.Stevenson's travelogues. In 1878 the outdoor excursions were an unusual pastime so Stevenson seeks to present the reader an innocent, showing Europe Gypsies and puppeteers, features military companies that spend their time in grotesque parades and old country essays that don't know anything outside of their small village.
