When young Jim Hawkins inherits a map from an old pirate called Billy Bones, he and his companions are thrust into a wild hunt for the buried treasure of the bloodthirsty buccaneer Captain Flint. 'Treasure Island', Robert Louis Stevenson's masterpiece of the imagination, is one of the most rip-roaring, swashbuckling, atmospheric adventure tales ever written, and gave to literature the immortal figure of Long John Silver.
