Overview

In these two historical tales of the Scottish lowlands in the eighteenth century, Robert Louis Stevenson brought to the novel of adventure a psychological sophistication it had never before possessed - a subtlety that, far from impeding the action, everywhere intensifies its speed and credibility.

With an Introduction by John Sutherland

John Sutherland is Lord Northcliffe Professor of Modern English Literature at University College, London. He is the author of The Longman Companion to Victorian Fiction and Mrs Humphrey Ward.
