Robert Louis Stevenson and the Goat Ranchers of Carmel Valley
Lindy Perez, historian of the Robert Louis Stevenson Club and docent at the Stevenson House, will discuss her research into the lives of two goat ranchers who saved the life of Stevenson when he fell gravely ill while camping at San Clemente Creek in 1879. Stevenson eventually recovered at their cabin in the depths of Carmel Valley and returned to Monterey.
Learn how the letters of RLS, local newspapers, and census reports corrected some myths and revealed the surprising stories of two very different American frontiersmen whose courage, hard work, and civic pride contributed to the character of early Monterey.
