Treasure Island

Treasure Island

Series: Apple Classics
by Robert Louis Stevenson

Billy Bones' old map shows a small island with a red cross marking a dead pirate's buried treasure. Young Jim Hawkins knows that a fortune in gold lies waiting for him.

Aboard the Hispaniola with his friends Dr. Livesey and Squire Trelawney, Jim sails toward Treasure Island. The voyage goes well until Jim hears a frightening conversation. He learns that the one-legged man who signed on as ship's cook is the famous pirate Long John Silver. And worse, he discovers that the crew is in a plot with Silver to steal the treasure. Jim wonders if he can do the seemingly impossible: save his life and the treasure.
