Treasure Island

Treasure Island

When he attends the dying patron of his familys boarding house, young Jim Hawkins has no idea that the man was once a pirate, or that the mans possessions include a map that will lead whoever has it to the island where the notorious buccaneer, Captain Flint, buried his treasure. Jim and his guardians hire a boat to sail to the island, unaware that the crew they have hired includes many members of Flints pirate band, among them the former quartermaster Long John Silver, and that they hope to claim the treasure for their own. The ensuing action-packed adventure established the classic pirate story as it was written for more than a century afterward, and it made the literary reputation of its young author, Robert Louis Stevenson.
