Treasure Island

Stevenson, Robert Louis

When a mysterious old sailor comes to stay at the Admiral Benbow Inn, the innkeeper’s son, Jim Hawkins, is set on course for a thrilling adventure.

The old man soon ends up dead, and among his possessions Jim discovers a map leading to buried treasure. Before long, Jim is setting sail to find it – but pirates are lurking in the ship’s crew, and the notorious Long John Silver is planning a mutiny…

Frequently adapted and dramatised, Treasure Island is the seminal pirate novel that paved the way for a whole genre.
