Robert Louis Stevenson.

Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Scotland in 1850. Stevenson had severe trouble with his lungs, maybe even tuberculosis, and had to travel to find a better place for his health. He became a lawyer, but his true passion was writing. He wrote many poems and short stories. His most popular piece of work was Treasure Island, Stevenson’s first novel. After Treasure Island, Stevenson settled down on Samoa. He continued to write until his death in 1894.
