ABOUT THE AUTHORS 


Robert Michael Ballantyne (24 April 1825 – 8 February 1894) was a Scottish author of juvenile fiction who wrote more than 100 books. His 1858 novel The Coral Island: A Tale of the Pacific Ocean (1858) is one of the first works of fiction to feature exclusively juvenile heroes. The tale of three boys marooned on a South Pacific island, the only survivors of a shipwreck, was the inspiration for William Golding's dystopian novel Lord of the Flies (1954). 


Daniel Defoe (c.1660 – 24 April 1731), born Daniel Foe, was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer, and spy, most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe, published in 1719. 


Henry De Vere Stacpoole (9 April 1863 – 12 April 1951) was an Irish author. His best known work is the 1908 romance novel The Blue Lagoon, which has been adapted into movies on five occasions. 


Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (13 November 1850 – 3 December 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde


Jonathan Swift (30 November 1667 – 19 October 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for the Whigs, then for the Tories), poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. 


Johann David Wyss (May 28, 1743 - January 11, 1818) was a Swiss author, best remembered for The Swiss Family Robinson (Der schweizerische Robinson). 


Translator William Henry Giles Kingston (28 February 1814 – 5 August 1880), often credited as W. H. G. Kingston, was an English writer of boys' adventure novels.
