Overview

Treasure Islands: Sailing the South Seas in the Wake of Fanny and Robert Louis Stevenson by Pamela Stephenson


This is the story of two resourceful women. The one, psychologist and wife of Billy Connolly, Pamela Stephenson—the other, Fanny Stevenson, intrepid wife of Robert Louis. Both married to maverick Scots, both in search of adventure, both drawn to the coral islands, lagoons, natives, and customs of the South Seas. A love of Joseph Conrad, a desire to escape the travails of an LA lifestyle, and a fascination with Fanny all inspired Pamela’s voyage to the other side of the world. Her encounters with the perils of the sea, the islanders, and latter-day pirates all make for marvelous reading—travel, adventure, history, and biography all rolled into one.
