About the Author
Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish writer who penned numerous classics including Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He was a celebrity author in his day, but when the modern age of literature rolled around, he was relegated to a second-class writer of children's stories and horror, though in recent years, his talent has been recognized as superior. He ranks among the most translated authors of all time.
