Overview

Treasure Island is a classic adventure story, featuring an ordinary boy, Jim Hawkins, who is transported to a treacherous world of pirates and buried treasure. Jim's adventures begin when he and his mother discover a pirate map in the chest of Billy Bones, a guest at their lodging-house. Jim's experiences on the ship Hispaniola and on Treasure Island test his resourcefulness and teach him important lessons about loyalty and physical courage. Perhaps his most important lesson grows out of his relationship with the one-legged pirate, Long John Silver—a lesson about the moral ambiguity of good and evil.
