Summary

In the Scottish canon, to be placed alongside Burns is high praise indeed, but it’s a rightful place for Robert Louis Stevenson, one of Scotland’s finest novelists.

Born in 1850, he managed to cram much into his 44 years travelling widely to France, the United States, Samoa, and the South Seas. Of course he is widely feted for his classics Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, Treasure Island, and poetry volumes such as A Child’s Garden Of Verses.

Here we concentrate on his short stories "Olliah" and "The Body Snatchers". Both offer compelling examples of narration and suspense superbly reduced to their essence. This volume is brought to your ears by Richard Mitchley and Robbie McNab.
