Product Description

In the South Seas records Stevenson's travels with his wife Fanny and their family in the Marquesas, the Paumotus and the Gilbert Islands during 1888-9. Origionally drafted in journal form while Stevenson travelled, it was then ambitiously rewritten to describe the Island and Islanders as well as Stevenson's own personal experience. These revisions continued when Stevenson's settled on the Samoan island where he died in 1894, and In The South Seas was published posthumously in 1896. Its combination of personal anecdote and historical account, of autobiography and anthropology , of Stevenson and South Sea island, has a particular charm.
