I knew "Dead Man's Chest:Travels after Robert Louis Stevenson" by Nicholas Rankin
was a famous book - I mean, for us Stevensonians, any of my fellow Stevenson fans recommended the book to me. Maybe it would be a very good book but I didn't have enough energy to challenge a thick English book and didn't even get it. But recently my American friend Mike who is a curator of Stevenson museum and a friend of Mr.Rankin sent me a copy with the autograph and the message to me from the very author... now I had no choice but to try to read it X(
It's really a big and heavy book but I carry it with me, read bit by bit. And I found it's a really interesting book though my poor vocabulary allow me to understand just the part of the paragraphs. I read it very slowly and have no idea how long do I need to finish it but it's great fun to follow the pilgrimages by other Stevenson fan. And I feel again... I should write about my own travels after Stevenson regardless of the possibility of showing it to someone.
