First published in 1775, The Journey was the result of a three-month trip to Scotland that Johnson took with James Boswell in 1773.
It contains Johnson's descriptions of the customs, religion, education, trade, and agriculture of a society that was new to him. The account in Boswell's diary, published after Johnson's death as The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides, with Samuel Johnson, LL.D. offers an intimate personal record of their journey as well as of 18th century behaviour and conversation.
