Atlantic Books. New. Drunken old sea dog Billy Bones drops anchor at the Admiral Benbow, an inn run by Jim Hawkins's mother and father. When Billy's former shipmates Black Dog and Blind Pew track him down to the inn, Jim learns that they were once crewmen to notorious pirate Captain Flint. The newcomers aren't interested in talking over old times on the high seas; its Flint's treasure map in Billy's possession they're after. The pirate gang descend on the inn to find Billy dead from a seizure, but Jim has beaten them to the map. The race is on to reach Treasure Island and unearth the booty. Jim secures the help of Squire Trelawney and Doctor Livesey, and with a crew including one-legged sea cook Long John Silver, they set off aboard the Hispaniola to find the place where X marks the spot. But danger and double-dealing lurk at every turn... Robert Louis Stevenson's swashbuckling adventure has captivated readers of all ages since it first appeared in book form in 1883, setting the standard for all the pirate and buried-treasure stories that followed. . 2012.
