Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island was not the first adventure story of pirates in the Caribbean, but it may as well have been. Since its publication in 1883, it's become the standard-the first and last word on the subject-and it remains an exhilarating, satisfying read for young and old alike to this day. A strange, crusty old pirate comes to stay with Jim Hawkins' family at the Admiral Benbow Inn. The map he carries with him will put them all in danger and be the impetus for young Jim's perilous journey with Long John Silver in search of treasure on the high seas.
