KIRKUS REVIEW

The Stevenson diaries for the years between 1890 and 1894, especially Fanny's, which is here in its original form for the first time, make a delightful account of their life at Vailima. Principally the account is Fanny's, but Robert's notes have been spliced in, to contrast and supplement. Together, they are marked by the fairytale images they evoke of the splendid tropics. A rich reflection of the natural warmth and beauty of the Stevenson's South Sea years.
