Treasured Islands: Cruising the South Seas with Robert Louis Stevenson
Lowell D. Holmes (au)
Like many sailors before & since, the South Sea islands haunted & inspired legendary author Robert Louis Stevenson. Lowell Holmesí account of Stevensonís Pacific wanderings is an enchanting mix of high seas adventure & a fresh view of the fragile writer & his eccentric but devoted family as they search for an island utopia that will restore the writerís failing health. Holmes describes Stevensonís fascination & respect for the island cultures. This is a superbly written account, based upon painstaking research & newly discovered documentation of Stevensonís final years. Holmes allows the reader to see 19th-century Samoa through Stevensonís eyes, & why he came to love the people & their islands. Black & white photos.
