Emerging still shaken from alcohol rehab, famed travel author J. Maarten Troost devised an unlikely recovery plan: The author of Lost on Planet China and The Sex Lives of Cannibals decided to retrace the 1890s South Pacific routes of his hero Robert Louis Stevenson. As Troost's many fans could predict, following in the footsteps of his literary idol turned out to be a hilarious, if some harrowing experience. In the midst of all his misadventures, however, is also the story of how Troost's eventful trek stabilized him and renewed his connections with the world around him.
