About the Author

Born in Edinburgh in 1850, to strict Calvinist parents, Robert Louis Stevenson was a famous Scottish novelist, poet and travel writer. His ill health meant that he spent the latter part of his life voyaging the world, in an attempt to find a climate that suited his health, and this contributed to the exoticism of much of his work. He finally settled in Samoa, and died in 1899. Revered during his lifetime, and often harshly underrated since his death, Robert Louis Stevenson is today recognized as one of the the great writers of the nineteenth century, having influenced authors such as Graham Greene, Jorge Luis Borges and Vladimir Nabokov.

Stevenson has some great stories here. There's more to him than Mr. Hyde and Long John Silver. Some of the stories are dated, true, but they are mostly interesting and all well written.

Although not RLS' best work, this deserves a read, especially if you are a fan of his body of work.
