About the Author
Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh in 1850. The son of a prosperous civil engineer, he was expected to follow the family profession but was finally allowed to study law at Edinburgh University. Stevenson reacted forcibly against the Presbyterianism of both his city's professional classes and his devout parents, but the influence of Calvinism on his childhood informed the fascination with evil that is so powerfully explored in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Stevenson suffered from a severe respiratory disease from his twenties onwards, leading him to settle in the gentle climate of Samoa with his American wife, Fanny Osbourne.

Probably best watching this as a film or reading the book
Oh, it is full of references to boat parts etc that I had to look up but it didnt stop me enjoying the story. Glad I have finally read it!
If you aren't used to older styled literature, then you may find it a bit heavy going and wordy but trust me- stick with it! It is a wonderful novel about pirates and treasure and is well worth a read.
