This vintage book contains Robert Louis Stevenson's 1892 novel, "e;The Wrecker"e;. It is a 'sprawling, episodic adventure story, a comedy of brash manners and something of a detective mystery' that centres round the abandoned wreck of the 'Flying Stud' at Midway Island. The gripping mystery is solved using strange clues hidden inside a stamp collection. A fantastic example of Stevenson's masterful style, "e;The Wrecker"e; is highly recommended for lovers of exciting mystery fiction. Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (1850 - 1894) was a famous Scottish essayist, novelist, poet, and travel writer. Some of his best known works include "e;Treasure Island"e; and "e;The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde"e;. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
