About the Author

Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1850, the only son of a wealthy engineer. His childhood was plagued by illness, making regular schooling impossible. Stevenson was a lively man of strong words and feelings, who decided to become a writer in his teens. His career took off when he published accounts of his travels. In 1881 he began Treasure Island, which was to make him famous when it was published in 1883. He started A Child's Garden of Verses while working on Treasure Island and revised it during a stay in England after 1884, when he also wrote Kidnaped and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He died suddenly in the South Seas in 1894.
