Robert Louis Stevenson and Treasure Island

Robert Louis Stevenson and Treasure Island. On a wet day in the summer of 1881, a carriage made the bleak journey through wild Glenshee to Braemar. In it were a young writer in ill-health and his family, hoping to escape the rain that through June and July had confined them to a small cottage in Pitlochry. The rain came with them. Without the rain Treasure Island might never have been written.
