About the Author

Robert Louis Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, essayist, and poet renowned for his captivating tales that have left an indelible mark on literature. Born into a family of engineers and lighthouse builders in Edinburgh, Scotland, Stevenson defied his family's expectations by pursuing a literary career. His fascination with storytelling began in his youth, and he penned his first works while convalescing from illness. Despite his fragile health, Stevenson's determination led him to study law at the University of Edinburgh, though his true passion remained in writing.
