Robert Louis Stevenson, author of “Treasure Island” and “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, traveled and lived in the Pacific from 1888 until his death in Samoa in 1894. He wrote fiction, history, travel journals, poetry and prayers about these Pacific experiences. All were popular when first published, but some of these writings are now little known. This attractive edition of the best of these writings coincides perfectly with the upsurge of interest in the Pacific and writings sympathetic to indigenous cultures.
