The Silverado squatters By: Robert Louis Stevenson,

The Silverado Squatters (1883) is Robert Louis Stevenson's travel memoir of his two-month honeymoon trip with Fanny Vandegrift (and her son Lloyd Osbourne) to Napa Valley, California, in 1880. In July 1879, Stevenson received word that his future American wife's divorce was almost complete, but that she was seriously ill. He left Scotland right away and travelled to meet her in Monterey, California, (his trip detailed in The Amateur Emigrant (1894) and Across the Plains (1892)). Broken financially, suffering from a lifelong fibrinous bronchitis condition, and with his writing career at a dead end, he was nursed back to health by his doctor, his nurse, and his future wife, while living briefly in Monterey, San Francisco, and Oakland. His father having provided money to help, on May 19, 1880, he married the San Francisco native, whom he had first met in France in 1875, soon after the events of An Inland Voyage. Still too weak to undertake the journey back to Scotland, friends suggested Calistoga, in the upper Napa Valley, with its healthy mountain air. They first went to the Hot Springs Hotel in Calistoga, but unable to afford the 10 dollars a week, they spent an unconventional honeymoon in an abandoned three-story bunkhouse at a derelict mining camp called "Silverado" on the shoul...

Stevenson at Silverado: The Life and Writing of Robert Louis Stevenson in the Napa Valley, California, 1880

Stevenson at Silverado: The Life and Writing of

From the elegant Hot Springs Hotel in Calistoga to a deserted bunkhouse beside an abandoned mine, "Stevenson at Silverado" brings to life the roaming and searching of a newly married Robert Louis Stevenson. Here are Stevenson's encounters with the stage drivers and muleteers, hunters and miners, innkeepers, windmakers, and roving prospectors he characterized in his wholly American book, "The Silverado Squatters." Moving in quiet, rambling episodes, "Stevenson at Silverado" reflects the casual spirit of the Napa Valey, one of the most beautiful sections of California. The simple and picturesque people of this countryside are vividly portrayed by Mrs. Issler, making that summer of 1880 come to life again. The encounter between Stevenson and the Silverado country was to be one of the most significant in the young author's life. Here he found a rich new fund of literary material; here he waded "deeper in the tide of life." The cover sketch is from his portrait by Wyatt Eaton, completed a few years after the honeymoon in the Napa Valley. It is used courtesy of the Silverado Museum, Saint Helena, California.
