Stevenson, Robert Louis: Across the Plains. V.1.1 August 18, 2009
Across the Plains (1892) is a collection of essays and memoirs. The first two chapters are part of his travel memoir The Amateur Emigrant and describe his travel from New York to San Francisco and contain some wonderful descriptive passages.
This text came from the Project Gutenberg and I have changed the numerous words printed in caps to lower case and italics where needed as this is much easier IMHO to read in the Sony Reader
The Amateur Emigrant (in full: The Amateur Emigrant from the Clyde to Sandy Hook) is Robert Louis Stevenson's travel memoir of his journey from Scotland to California in 1879-1880. It is not a complete account, covering the first third, by ship from Europe to New York City. The middle leg of the trip is in Across the Plains (1892) with the final part in The Silverado Squatters (1883). The Amateur Emigrant was written in 1879-80 and was not published in full until 1895, one year after his death.
I have supplied a "no footers file" for those who prefer that style.
Version 1.1 uploaded which fixes a couple of things I missed
