About Book

Book Description
From the creator of Treasure Island and Kidnapped, and written while he lived in Samoa, this was the author's last title. Stevenson had written all but the very conclusion of this work at the time of his death. His stepdaughter had been serving as his secretary and was in possession of an outline for the ending.

In order to conclude the story the publisher enlisted the talents of Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch who supplied the last few chapters.

" ' His life was a gyration of energetic curiosity. . . He was everywhere, and at everything; he had gone down in a diving-bell and gone up in a balloon.’ At least he had gone down in a diver’s dress, and if there no record of as ascent performed in his own person, he sent his hero up in a balloon at the close of St. Ives."

The Faith of Robert Louis Stevenson John Kelman

Now, I was asking myself, how far will a gentleman go? Not surely so far as to help hush a murder up? So that - when I heard you tell how you knew nothing of the matter, and were only awakened by the corporal, and all the rest of it - I translated your statements into something else.
