Treasure IslandBook - 2009
The story grew out of a map that led to imaginary treasure, devised during a holiday in Scotland by Stevenson and his nephew. The tale is told by an adventurous boy, Jim Hawkins, who gets hold of a treasure map and sets off with an adult crew in search of the buried treasure. 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 classic story and one of the most popular pirate stories ever (many Swashbuckling Fantasies feature pirates). A rip-roaring adventure that is also a coming-of-age story.
