The Amateur Emigrant, The Silverado Squatters and The Silverado Diary
1925. Volume IV of the South Seas Edition. Stevenson is best remembered for Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Here is a real American book. Stevenson comes to our shores as an emigrant, crosses the country with observing eyes, and delights us with pictures of days as a squatter in Silverado. Here are nameless characters we cannot forget, bits of nature description we like to read again and again, and touches of humanity that reveal the author as one gifted with rare sympathy and understanding. If we were compelled to relinquish any of Stevenson's books this would be one of the last we should give up! Contents: The Amateur Emigrant; The Old and New Pacific Capitals; The Silverado Squatters; and The Silverado Diary. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
