Stevenson himself is not mentioned but along with Robinson Crusoe, Treasure Island is a major influence on Swallows and Amazons. Most of the pirate talk comes from there Captain Flint, the parrot, etc.

Ransome himself wrote a book of literary criticism on Stevenson which was not published until quite recently when a long lost draft was discovered and edited for publication by a TARS member.
