Description:

This book collects the two much loved and world-renowned classics from Robert Louis Stevenson. The perfect gift for anyone who loves these bokes or Stevenson's works, it also features a gazetteer by Ian Nimmo and an introduction by Alan Taylor. When Kidnapped first appeared in 1886 in a boys' magazine called Young Folks, Stevenson was already renowned as an essayist, a poet and a writer of travelogues and fiction of rare inventiveness. He had started to write Kidnapped 'partly as a lark, partly as a pot-boiler'. However, Kidnapped and its sequel Catriona, published in 1893, took him into new territory of imagination, romance and adventure, and to a worldwide audience. Of Catriona, Stevenson wrote that it was 'nearer what I mean than anything I have ever done; nearer what I mean by fiction; the nearest thing before was Kidnapped.'
