Robert Louis StevensonBorn into the famous family of engineers and lighthouse builders, Robert Louis Stephenson took a different path early on. He was born 'Robert Lewis Balfour Stevenson' in Edinburgh, Scotland, on 13th November 13, 1850. Studying engineering and then law, he knew neither suited him. Aged 18 he changed his middle name to Louis, dropping the 'Balfour' (his mother's family name) and travelled widely, writing a series of travelogues that became his first books. In later life he moved on to the adventure novels that he is remembered for today as well as the classic Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde. He died in Samoa in 1894, aged only 44, and is buried there. However there are monuments to the writer and his writing world-wide.
