Sailing by Starlight

(2010)
A novel by

 
How much of Robert Louis Stevenson's most famous book, Treasure Island, was pure fiction? In Sailing by Starlight, Swiss novelist Alex Capus takes us on an exploratory journey via the loss of a ship in the South Seas, the burial of treasure, an ancient map, and a long and dangerous voyage across the Pacific to prove that Robert Louis Stevenson's "treasure island" exists, albeit in a place quite different from the imaginings of generations of treasure-hunters. He suggests that Stevenson spent the last five years of his life in Samoa for that reason alone.
