The author of Kidnapped, Treasure Island novels and poetry, Robert Louis Stevenson
The author was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1850 and died at the young age of 44 on a small Samoan island in the Pacific. He was as adventurous in his life as some of his characters and left his mark in many unlikely places ~ he even lived for a while in an abandoned mining shack in Northern California as the rents in San Francisco were too expensive ... even then?
