Megaselling biographer, internationally renowned psychologist, ex-comedienne and mother of four (three teenage girls and Billy Connolly), the extraordinary Pamela Stephenson now adopts a new guise - historian, sailor, 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, a thirst for adventure, a fearlessness and great humour in the face of adversity and unpredictable husbands. Compelling, intriguing, unputdownable, Treasure Islands is travel/adventure/history/celebrity all rolled into one extraordinary book.
Stephenson has a light touch with the pen and a good eye for her world...grippingly well-written, an unusual work that is both biography and travel book * ADELAIDE ADVERTISER * 'her experiences of diving in a bait ball in the Galapagos, drinking kava in the male-only bars of Vanuatu and exploring cannibal sites...will delight' * Daily Express *
