Treasure Island is the seminal pirates and buried treasure novel, which is so brilliantly concocted that it appeals to readers both young and old. The story is told in the first person by young Jim Hawkins, whose mother keeps the Admiral Benbow Inn. An old seadog, a resident at the inn, hires Jim to keep a watch out for other sailors whom he fears but, despite all precautions, the old man is served with the black spot which means death. Among the dead man's belongings Jim discovers a map showing the location of the buried treasure of the notorious pirate Captain Flint. It is not long before he, along with Doctor Livesey and Squire Trelawney, sets sail to find the treasure. However, amongst the hired hands is the one-legged Long John Silver who has designs on the treasure for himself. The continuing fascination with this tale of high drama, buried treasure and treachery bears out what Stevenson wrote about the book to his friend W. E. Henley: 'if this don't fetch the kids, why, they have gone rotten since my day.' The book not only continues to 'fetch the kids' but the grown-ups too - in fact all those with the spirit of adventure in their hearts.

Squire Trelawney, Doctor Livesey, and the rest of these gentlemen having asked me to write down the whole particulars about Treasure Island, from the beginning to the end, keeping nothing back but the bearings of the island, and that only because there is still treasure not yet lifted, I take up my pen in the year of grace 17-, and go back to the time when my father kept the "e;Admiral Benbow"e; Inn, and the brown old seaman, with the saber cut, first took up his lodging under our roof.I remember him as if it were yesterday, as he came plodding to the inn door, his sea-chest following behind him in a hand-barrow; a tall, strong, heavy, nut-brown man; his tarry pig-tail falling over the shoulders of his soiled blue coat; his hands ragged and scarred, with black, broken nails, and the saber cut across one cheek, a dirty, livid white. I remember him looking round the cove and whistling to himself as he did so, and then breaking out in that old sea-song that he sang so often afterwards:"e;Fifteen men on the dead man's chest,Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!"e;in the high, old tottering voice that seemed to have been tuned and broken at the capstan bars. Then he rapped on the door with a bit of stick like a handspike that he carried, and when my father appeared, called roughly for a glass of rum. This, when it was brought to him, he drank slowly, like a connoisseur, lingering on the taste, and still looking about him at the cliffs and up at our signboard.

While Jim cares for him, Bones confesses that he was once the mate of a notorious late pirate, Captain Flint, and that his old crew-mates want Bones' sea chest. Some time later, another of Bones' crew mates, a blind man named Pew, appears at the inn and forces Jim to lead him to Bones. Pew gives Bones a paper. After Pew leaves, Bones opens the paper to discover it is marked with the Black Spot, a pirate summons, with the warning that he has until ten o'clock to meet their demands. Bones drops dead of apoplexy (in this context, a stroke) on the spot. Jim and his mother open Bones' sea chest to collect the amount due to them for Bones' room and board, but before they can count out the money that they are owed, they hear pirates approaching the inn and are forced to flee and hide, Jim taking with him a mysterious oilskin packet from the chest. The pirates, led by Pew, find the sea chest and the money, but are frustrated that there is no sign of "e;Flint's fist"e;. Customs men approach and the pirates escape to their vessel, all except for Pew, who is accidentally run down and killed by the agents' horses.... (Excerpt from Wikipedia)

When old drunken sailor Billy Bones dies at the Admiral Benbow Inn, the innkeeper's son Jim Hawkins finds a map amongst his possessions. The local physician, Doctor Livesey, and the squire, Trelawney, believe the map is of an island where the infamous pirate Captain Flint buried his treasure. They decide to buy a ship to go and find it, and Jim decides to join the crew as cabin boy. But also joining Captain Smollett's crew is a one-legged cook with a parrot named Long John Silver. As Jim discovers, Silver is just one of the crew who was also part of Captain Flint's crew, and they're planning a mutiny. After they reach the island and the pirates rise up, Jim is separated from the others loyal to Captain Smollett. He soon learns that they are not alone on the island after all, and that perhaps the treasure has already been found.

Stevenson's classic tale of 18th-century intrigue, conspiracy and piracy has everything an adventure story should have, especially a resourceful young hero in Jim Hawkins. From the moment a drunken sailor arrives to menace the tranquillity of his father's inn, Jim is caught up in a web of plots. By chance rather than design, he finds himself the central figure in an attempt to recover the buried treasure of a pirate named Flint. Long John Silver's villainy and the search for this booty spark off skulduggery, murder and betrayal. 1. An Unwelcome Guest - A drunken sailor - The 'black spot'. A rough-looking sailor, 'Captain' Billy Bones, arrives at the Admiral Benbow, an inn owned by Jim Hawkins' father. Billy asks Jim to watch out for a sailor with one leg, and when a pirate enters the inn looking for him, the two men quarrel. After Jim's father dies, a blind man, Pew, arrives and forces a piece of paper into Billy's hand. Billy dies of terror at the sight of the 'black spot' in his palm. Jim and his mother, determined to get the money owed to them for Billy's keep, search his sea-chest and find an oilskin packet. When they hear the blind man returning with his mates, they flee. 2. Flint's Treasure - Trelawney's decision. The pirates, led by Blind Pew, break in and ransack the inn looking for 'Flint's fist' - the oilskin packet. When they hear horsemen approach, they escape, but Pew is knocked down and killed by the horses of the pursuing revenue officers. These men take Jim to the house of Squire Trelawney, where Dr Livesey the local magistrate and physician is dining. Both men are fascinated by what they hear, and Trelawney relates the terror of Captain Flint and his riches. In the packet from Billy's chest they discover a logbook and map pinpointing treasure buried on an island. Trelawney decides to equip a ship to find this island and take the money. 3. The Hispaniola - Captain Smollett's fears - A conspiracy overheard. In Bristol, Jim finds a schooner, the Hispaniola, ready for their voyage. The Squire lacks discretion and shrewdness in choosing a crew, and the new Captain, Smollett, is unhappy that the men know too much about their destination. The ship sets sail and Jim is appointed cabin-boy. Chief among the crew is the one-legged cook Long John Silver. One night on deck, Jim overhears Silver telling the others how he sailed with Flint and realizes that he is now stirring up a mutiny. Suddenly, the lookout hails land. 4. Skeleton Island - Witness to murder - A shaggy castaway. Jim relates what he has heard to Dr Livesey and the Squire, and they arm themselves and their servants, before letting a number of the sailors go ashore aE ' 13 go, including Silver and Dr Livesey. Jim also slips ashore, but in secret. On the island, Jim sees Silver kill Tom Redruth, a sailor who opposes the pirate's villainous plans. Appalled, he scurries away but encounters a wild-looking man in goat skins. This is Ben Gunn, a sailor marooned on the island for three long years after suggesting a fruitless hunt for Flint's treasure. Ben is one of Flint's original crew and claims to be rich. Gunfire, however, ends their conversation. 5. Mutiny Starts - Futile parley - Jim's brilliant idea. Jim notices a stockade where Trelawney and Livesey are flying the Union Jack. He joins his friends and tells of Ben's story. They in turn relate how Silver and his pirates have mutinied and forced the Squire and the doctor to take refuge in the stockade. Soon after, Silver approaches offering a truce, but Smollett sees through his deviousness. Jim slips away unnoticed to find Ben's coracle and to attempt to cut loose the Hispaniola. As night falls, he paddles out to the anchored ship, now sporting the Jolly Roger, cuts its cable and climbs aboard. 6. Jim the Hero - Unhappy surprise. Jim finds that all the mutineers on board have killed each other in a quarrel so, single-handedly, he sails the schooner round the island, running her aground on shore. Then, crossing the woods, he enters the stockade full of pride at his brave deed. However, while he is away, Silver and the pirates seize the stockade, causing many casualties and injuring Captain Smollett. Dr Livesey is allowed to go free and sets off to consult Ben Gunn. When Jim returns to the blockhouse, he stumbles over a sleeping form and disturbs everyone. Jim is given the chance of joining Silver's band, but defiantly refuses. The buccaneers withdraw for a council and leave Silver and Jim alone. 7. A Cunning Pirate - A vote of no confidence - The doctor's warning. Silver tells Jim he has changed sides. Then, the pirates return and give Silver a 'black spot' for leading them to disaster. Unimpressed, Silver rejects their accusations and persuades them he is double-bluffing. He finally wins them back by producing Flint's treasure chart. Next day, Dr Livesey arrives to tend the wounded pirates. He warns Silver to beware of the treasure, but promises to try to save him from the gallows. 8. The Final Secret - Lost treasure - Silver vanishes. Next morning, the pirates and Jim set out to find the treasure, but are alarmed by a skeleton they see on the way. When they reach the place where the treasure is marked, they find an immense hole aE ' the treasure has gone. The pirates are about to attack Jim and Silver in their rage when shots ring out and two men are killed. The remaining three flee as Ben Gunn, Dr Livesey and a follower emerge. Ben explains how he dug up the treasure and took it to his cave. Over the next few days they carry the gold on board the Hispaniola and sail away, marooning the three remaining pirates. Silver receives his share of the loot and vanishes, but Treasure Island long haunts Jim's dreams.

'there were only seven out of the twenty-six on whom we knew we could rely; and out of those seven one was a boy ...' When a mysterious seafarer puts up at the Admiral Benbow, young Jim Hawkins is haunted by his frightening tales; the sailor's sudden death is the beginning of one of the most exciting adventure stories in literature. The discovery of a treasure map sets Jim and his companions in search of buried gold, and they are soon on board the Hispaniola with a crew of buccaneers recruited by the one-legged sea cook known as Long John Silver. As they near their destination, and the lure of Captain Flint's treasure grows ever stronger, Jim's courage and wits are tested to the full. Stevenson reinvented the genre with Treasure Island, a boys' story that appeals as much to adults as to children, and whose moral ambiguities turned the Victorian universe on its head. This edition celebrates the ultimate book of pirates and high adventure, and also examines how its tale of greed, murder, treachery, and evil has acquired its classic status.

Among the crew, however, is the treacherous Long John Silver who is determined to keep the treasure for himself. Stevenson's first full-length work of fiction brought him immediate fame and continues to captivate readers of all ages.

A 2013 World Book Night selection.   One of Dan Snow's favourite books.   Marcus Sedgwick, July 2010 Guest Editor, says:"I continually list this book in my top five, because it's my belief that most people haven't actually read it, and know it only from bowdlerised abridgements, which is a shame because the real thing is powerful, dark and above all, scary."June 2010 Guest Editor Michael Morpurgo remembers:A terrifically exciting tale of a dead man’s map, mutinous pirates, skulduggery and buried treasure that will be thoroughly enjoyed by a child if read aloud to them from the age of 5 upwards.  It’s such a gripping adventure that children are sure to pick it up again to read alone when they’re a little older.  It’s the story of Jim Hawkins who discovers a map in an old sea chest but little does he know of the danger and excitement which lie ahead when sets sail for Treasure Island in search of treasure.What Michael Morpurgo says of his favourite children's book:'This was the first proper book I read for myself.  Jim Hawkins was the first character in a book I identified with totally. I was Jim Hawkins. I lived Treasure Island as I read it.  And I loved it.  Still do. I wish I'd written it.'Treasure Island in a nutshell:Black spot moment.  Sea dog dies.  Jim finds map.  Ship sets sail.  Pirates on board.  Island is found.  Madman in cave.  Two rival camps.  Battle for map.  Dig up chest.  Treasure is gone.  Gunn has gold.  Head back home.  Silver runs off. Jim writes book.
