Product Description

Book Description

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), novelist and poet, was descended from a famous Scottish engineering family, particularly known for lighthouse construction. This family history, published in 1912, vividly recounts his ancestors' professional and private lives, and includes his grandfather's account of the building of the Bell Rock lighthouse. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Robert Louis Stevenson (eigentlich Robert Levis Balfour Stevenson) wurde am 13.11.1850 in Edinburgh geboren. Der Vater war Leuchtturmbaumeister, das wollte auch der Sohn werden. Er hatte jedoch ein Lungenleiden und studierte daher Jura von 1871-1875. Er arbeitete jedoch nicht als Rechtsanwalt sondern wurde freier Schriftsteller, vergeblich ein Klima suchend, das sein Lungenleiden heilte. Seit 1888 lebte er auf Samoa, wo er bei den Eingeborenen in hohem Ansehen stand. Er starb am 03.12.1894 im Haus Vailima bei Apia (Westsamoa). --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
