Summary
When young Jim Hawkins finds a mysterious map in a dead sailor's sea trunk, it marks the start of a thrilling treasure hunt and a very dangerous adventure. Accompanied by the local doctor and squire, he sets off on the high seas as a cabin-boy, determined to find the buried hoard. But they are not alone in their quest, a band of pirates -- led by the enigmatic, one-legged Long John Silver -- will stop at nothing to take back what they believe is theirs. One of the best-loved children's stories of all time, Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island is a thrilling tale of swashbuckling heroes and dastardly villains that continues to enchant readers young and old. This beautiful edition of Treasure Island is illustrated by H.M. Brock, with an afterword by Sam Gilpin.
