Summary
"This is the story of two resourceful women. The one, Pamela Stephenson--biographer, mother, wife of Billy Connolly, psychologist and ex-comedienne--the other Fanny Stevenson--'the Wild Woman of the West', as her husband Robert Louis called her. Both married to maverick Scottish men, both in search of adventure and a kind of epiphany, both drawn for a myriad of reasons to the coral islands, lagoons, natives and customs of the South Seas"--P. [4] of cover. "Aboard a 112-foot clipper, the author follows in the intrepid footsteps of Fanny Stevenson, maverick wife of Robert Louis Stevenson, and quickly finds that the two have much in common: a fascination with the South Seas, a thirst for adventure, great humor in the face of adversity, and unpredictable husbands. Complete with pirates, storms, and seasickness, this witty account is a history lesson, travel journal, and humorous story." --Publisher.
