Note Relating to
Cather: In an 1897 Home Monthly article, Cather writes: "I received a few days ago a letter from one of our readers asking what book I would most highly recommend for a boy of fourteen. Of course, there is no 'best' boy's book, but I replied without hesitation Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island."
In a 1901 Courier article, Cather writes: "While young men were scurrying about the world in search of material and adventure, the best of adventure stories came from the sick bed with blood-stained linen where Stevenson wrote Treasure Island and The Master of Ballantrae."
