About the Contributors
Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1850. Stevenson’s most famous work is the classic pirate tale Treasure Island, which was published in 1883. Stevenson later created an infamous, but very intriguing, character in The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, published in 1886. In 1887, Stevenson headed for America. It was soon after this move that he took up his pen for The Master of Ballantrae, a novel which is considered one of his best works. Stevenson died in 1894. While best known for writing tales of action and adventure, he is also remembered as an accomplished poet and essayist.
