An American Gentleman
by G. B. Stern.
In 1881 Robert Louis Stevenson wrote "Treasure Island", which he dedicated to his step-son, Lloyd Osbourne, in the following words "..an American Gentleman in accordance with whose classical taste, the following narrative has been designed..."
Robert Louis Stevenson spent the last years of his life in Samoa, and this is the smarting point for this story. The Samoans' name for Stevenson was 'Tusitala' 'the storyteller'. The action takes place in Samoa, Braemar in Scotland, and Davos in Switzerland.
