Stevenson, Robert Louis

Robert Louis Stevenson, arguably one of the greatest novelists of his time, was the author of many books and poems. His works include Kidnapped, Treasure Island and A Child's Garden of Verses.

The Scottish novelist was the son of Margaret Balfour and revolving light designer Thomas Stevenson. His grandfather was lighthouse pioneer Robert Stevenson.

Robert Louis Stevenson suffered ill-health all his life, living the last years of his life on the island of Samoa, where the climate suited him better.
