We had accepted this purgatory as a child accepts the conditions of the world

Across the plains, . Across the Plains, . We had accepted this purgatory as a child accepts the conditions of the world. For my part, I shivered a little, and my back ached wearily; but I believe I had neither a hope nor a fear, and all the activities of my nature had become tributary to one massive sensation of discomfort. At length, and after how long an interval I hesitate to guess, the crowd began to move, heavily straining through itself.

Robert Louis Stevenson. Robert Louis Stevenson. In fifteenth-century England, when his father's murderer is revealed to be his guardian, seventeen-year-old Richard Shelton joins the fellowship of the Black Arrow in avenging the death, rescuing the woman he loves, and participating in the struggle between the Yorks and Lancasters in the War of the Roses. Stevenson's brooding historical romance demonstrates his most abiding theme-the elemental struggle between good and evil-as it unfolds against a hauntingly beautiful Scottish landscape, amid the fierce loyalties and violent enmities that characterized Scottish history.

The wretched little booking-office, and the baggage-room, which was not much larger, were crowded thick with emigrants, and were heavy and rank with the atmosphere of dripping clothes. Open carts full of bedding stood by the half-hour in the rain. The officials loaded each other with recriminations. A bearded, mildewed little man, whom I take to have been an emigrant agent, was all over the place, his mouth full of brimstone, blustering and interfering. It was plain that the whole system, if system there was, had utterly broken down under the strain of so many passengers.

Robert Lewis Balfour Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, the son of a lighthouse engineer. As a child he was often sick, especially during the winter months, possibly due to chronic bronchiectasis. He often tutored at home due to his illnesses, but at age eleven he was sent to Edinburgh Academy. He was always interested in writing stories, and his father published his first book, The Pentland Rising: A Page of History, 1666, in 1866. In 1867 he went to the University of Edinburgh for engineering, although the discipline did not interest him. In 1871, he told his father that he intended. One fee. Stacks of books.

An emigrant ship had arrived at New York on the Saturday night, another on the Sunday morning, our own on Sunday afternoon, a fourth early on Monday; and as there is no emigrant train on Sunday a great part of the passengers from these four ships was concentrated on the train by which I was to travel. There was a babel of bewildered men, women, and children.

good, but a bit of a struggle at times

The title essay and one or two others were decent, the rest are wasted time I'll never get back. Can't understand how anyone would have read and enjoyed them.

This book is set up like a .pdf file... If I wanted a pdf version of the book I would have bought that instead. Set up so poorly I don't even plan on reading it

This book seemed to be well written in some areas at least, but I found it is not what I thought it would be. I thought it was uninteresting for me. Now to other people it might be a very interesting book but I found it to not be my type of book.

What a collection of little gems. Robert Louis Stevenson is justly remembered for novels like Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but he was also a master of the essay. These dozen short works are a delight. Whether taking us on a transcontinental railroad journey, introducing us to the artists' colony of Fontainebleau ("The art of words and not a desire to publish new discoveries, the love of form and not a novel reading of historical events, mark the vocation of the writer and the painter."), or meditating on man's place in the universe, Stevenson combines lyrical, descriptive prose with a keen eye for detail. He can rhapsodize about nature, and then skewer man's cruelty or hypocrisy. It makes for writing you'll want to return to again and again.
