Meet the Author

Robert Louis Stevenson was not only a gifted writer, he was also an indefatigable traveller. His thirst for adventure was formed by his boyhood visits to remote Scottish lighthouses, and he spent most of his life fleeing the rigours of cold climes and social orthodoxy. Along the way he travelled through France, Belgium, America, and the South Pacific.
