Review:

"Beautiful as she is, she is not so much beautiful as interesting. She is pre-eminently Gothic, and all the more so since she has set herself off with some Greek airs, and erected classic temples on her crags. In a word and above all, she is a curiosity. R. L. Stevenson on Edinburgh

About the Author:

Perhaps best known as the author of Treasure Island (1883) and other children's literature, Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a prolific travel writer, novelist, playwright, and essayist. Born in Edinburgh, he was a keen traveller throughout his life. He wrote many accounts inspired by his trips including An Island Voyage (1878) based on his canoeing adventures in France and Belgium, and a year later, Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes. His tales of travelling on an emigrant ship and train to California, was posthumously published in The Amateur Emigrant in 1895. In 1888, Stevenson left England for good and settled in Samoa until his death. It was on the island that he became known as 'Tusitala' or 'The Teller of Tales':
