The Silverado Squatters, first published 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. The couple's honeymoon was spent in an abandoned three-story bunkhouse at a derelict mining camp called "Silverado" on the shoulder of Mount Saint Helena in the Mayacamas Mountains, because the couple were unable to afford the ten dollars per week at the Hot Springs Hotel in Calistoga.
