Book Description

Robert Louis Stevenson was a Scottish essayist, poet, novelist, and travel writer. His most famous works are Kidnapped, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and Treasure Island. Stevenson in collaboration with his stepson Lloyd Osbourne has written this adventure novel. The Wrecker is full of exciting incidents, quick action and vivid characters. The setting is modern and shifts from land to sea. The main story begins in San Francisco with the purchase of a wrecked ship, flying sand, and the new owners' voyage in search of treasure. Instead of the joy of finding treasure there is a horrible tragedy. Clues in a stamp collection will help track down the missing crew and solve the mystery.
