The dynamiter by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

113 editions published between 1885 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three bored men, down to their last few pennies, vow to go out into London's streets and pursue whichever adventure befalls them. What ensues is a series of remarkable stories in which the protagonists encounter several characters who may or may not be conspirators in a bombing plot on behalf of Irish independence. The characters weave intriguing and troubling tales of their histories. The chapters stand alone as adventures, but the whole is tied together nicely in the end. There is a strong satirical bent throughout the book, but some of the stories carry hidden political punches as well. The relationship of the various characters is mysterious, yet Stevenson does little to perpetuate the mystery. He is more concerned with the storytelling, and that storytelling is terrific. More than that, I dare not write, as details would quickly expose the interconnected aspects of the stories. Suffice to say that in a book about British wanderers, Stevenson manages to tell tales of murderous Mormons, crazed Voodoo practitioners, and wayward Bohemian princes, among others

Travels with a donkey in the Cevennes by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

3 editions published between 1905 and 1928 in English and English, Old and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Louis Stevenson was not only a gifted writer, he was also an indefatigable traveller. His thirst for adventure was formed by his boyhood visits to remote Scottish lighthouses, and he spent much of his life fleeing the rigours of cold climates and social orthodoxy. Along the way he canoed through Belgium and France, booked passage to and across America, and finally famously settled in Samoa in the South Seas. The walking trip that Stevenson describes in Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes (1879) was taken when the nascent author was still in his twenties and pining for a lost love. Accompanied by Modestine, the eponymous donkey he hired to carry his camping gear, the journey proved both challenging and charming. The book is infused with all of the qualities that make Stevenson the most popular of writers: humour and humanity, poetry and perspicacity, ebullience and intelligence."--Publisher's description
The merry men and other tales and fables ; Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

4 editions published between 1905 and 1921 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[The first story is] a short novella written in the Gothic tradition, although it moves that genre to a different level. While being both a cautionary tale against over-reaching ambition and the excesses of scientific rationalism, it is also a stirring psychoanalytical study of the darker side of man. --About.com
