I suppose it's worth bearing in mind that Travels with a Donkey was written from notes as an afterthought. It's certainly a different genre from the novels, perhaps a little like An Inland Voyage.
I would not really expect to see the contextual rigour that you might find in a work from Sir Walter Scott.
Overall I enjoyed it. His donkey (Modestine) certainly was a stubborn old mule and I liked the way things played out regarding his relationship with her.
