Author(s): Pamela Stephenson
Megaselling biographer, internationally renowned psychoanalyst, ex-comedienne, mother of four (three teenage girls and Billy Connolly), the extraordinary Pamela Stephenson now adopts a new guise - historian, ballor, and circumnavigator of the globe. In TREASURE ISLANDS, Pamela follows in the intrepid footsteps of Fanny Stevenson, maverick wife of the even more maverick Robert Louis. They have much in common - a fascination with the South Seas, and a thirst for adventure, a fearlessness and great humour in the face of adversity and unpredictable husbands. This is her adventure - and the story of her and Fanny. Though Pamela's voyage is in a modern 112 foot clipper, she faces many of the dangers that Fanny faced - from pirates to storms to seasickness. Compelling, intriguing, unputdownable, TREASURE ISLANDS is travel/adventure/history/celebrity all rolled into one extraordinary book. First published 2005.
