		FACING PAGE
Bed in Summer 	4

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
Foreign Lands 	10

I held the trunk with both my hands
And looked abroad on foreign lands.
The Land of Counterpane 	18

I was the giant great and still
That sits upon the pillow-hill,
My Shadow 	20

He stays so close beside me, he's a coward you can see;
I'd think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!
Foreign Children 	34

Little Indian, Sioux or Crow,
Little frosty Eskimo,
Little Turk or Japanee,
Oh! don't you wish that you were me?
Looking-glass River 	42

We can see our coloured faces
Floating on the shaken pool
[Pg xvi]
The Hayloft 	48

Oh, what a joy to clamber there,
Oh, what a place for play,
With the sweet, the dim, the dusty air,
The happy hills of hay!
North-west Passage 	50

And face with an undaunted tread
The long black passage up to bed.
Picture-books in Winter 	64

Water now is turned to stone
Nurse and I can walk upon;
Still we find the flowing brooks
In the picture story-books.
The Little Land 	74

I have just to shut my eyes
To go sailing through the skies—
To go sailing far away
To the pleasant Land of Play;
The Flowers 	84

All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse,
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock,
And the Lady Hollyhock.
To Auntie 	100

What did the other children do?
And what were childhood, wanting you?

Mr. Balfour, of the House of Shaws 	18
What he was, whether by trade or birth, was more than I could fathom
At Queen’s Ferry 	48
And the spirit of all that I beheld put me in thoughts of far voyages and foreign places
The Siege of the Round-House 	84
It came all of a sudden when it did, with a rush of feet and a roar, and then a shout from Alan
The Wreck of the “Covenant” 	112
It was the spare yard I had got hold of, and I was amazed to see how far I had travelled from the brig
On the Island of Earraid 	122
But the second day passed; and as long as the light lasted I kept a bright look-out for boats on the sound or men passing on the Boss
The Murderer of Roy Campbell of Glenure 	154
At that the murderer gave a little, quick look over his shoulder, and began to run
At the Cards in Cluny’s Cage 	214
But Alan and Cluny were most of the time at the cards
Two Pipers in Balquhidder 	238
All night long the brose was going and the pipes changing hands
The Parting 	286

*** End of this Doctrine Publishing Corporation Digital Book "Index of the Project Gutenberg works of Robert Louis Stevenson" ***

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
ISYS search  means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
