Robert Louis Stevenson (our unco author of the month for November) was born on 13th November 1850. He's best known for 'Treasure Island,' 'Kidnapped' and 'The Master of Ballantrae' but there's a lot more to him than these (wonderful) novels.
In 2018 Lachlan Munro fulfilled a long held ambition to publish his thoughts on Stevenson's Kidnapped through Deveron Press, and you can buy it from the Unco store HERE
Scenery of Dreams: The True Story of Robert Louis Stevenson's 'Kidnapped' offers a new perspective on the man, his work and the history surrounding this well loved classic work.
Lachlan Munro will be talking about his book and signing copies at Blackwells, South Bridge, Edinburgh on Saturday 17th November at 3.30pm as part of the RLS day (week) celebrations. More information HERE
