A marvelous depiction of two sides of South Sea Islands' life through three separate tales.  One, the experience of the incoming British keen to live free and exploit the innocent; the other the supernatural as perceived by Stevenson working in the lives of the natives.  One tale carries the germ of the story of Madame Butterfly, since become a part of Western culture.  Another is an extraordinary retelling of a German horror story transposed to a South Sea Island setting.  The last is an effort of the pure Stevensonian imagination and there can be nothing better.    - Summary by TONY ADDISON
