A new copy received with a faintly bumped spine head and faint edgewear to unclipped dust wrapper. A lovely copy.; 'Tracing the path of Stevenson's fateful South Seas journey. An enchanting mix of high seas adventure and a fresh view on the fragile writer, this is an illuminating and respectful approach to the author's exploratory journeys.'; This 'is a personal look at a beloved and renowned author of classics in terms of his high adventures on the South Pacific between 1888 and 1890. Life on the islands, European religious influence, and the saga of indigenous populations are all covered in this dramatic, exciting, and well-researched account. Biographer Lowell Holmes draws upon his impressive expertise regarding the life and work of Robert Louis Stevenson (he produced a documentary film on Stevenson in the Pacific) to deftly craft a work of historical accuracy and insight. Treasured Islands is a very highly recommended ... and a "must" for admirers of Robert Louis Stevenson's literary works.' Image is actual copy on offer. Published @ $29.95.
