- Stevenson, Robert Louis
- Note Source
- Collected Short Fiction 1892-1912 265, 276
- Note Relating to Cather
- Cather quotes the entire first stanza at the beginning of "The Treasure of Far Island" ("Dark brown is the river . . . ") and the first line of stanza two at the beginning of part two: "Green leaves a-floating." One can look for many allusions to Stevenson throughout that story.
