Excerpt from Rambles About the Riviera
The book has no sequence. It consists of mere detached fragments; glimpses, caught in passing, of old walled towns and feudal fortresses, of gorges, and rivers, and ancient churches, of happy peasants, and forgotten saints, in fact of an... ything which struck my fancy, and which I thought might strike that of my readers.
There are many places I should have liked to have spoken about, well-known places, which would have been interesting to visit, but it is impossible to do more, in one short volume, than take a hasty glance at this wonderful southern land.
So, with this word of introduction, I shall open the pages of the old notebook I always keep in my pocket, and try to give you some idea of the weeks we spent the last two autumns rambling about the Riviera.
