Inspired by the tall tales left behind by a weathered, old seaman upon his death, young Jim Hawkins sets sail on a swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime to find the treasure—marked with an “X”—on an old map that belonged to an infamous pirate called Captain Flint.
First serialized in Young Folks magazine, the influence of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island continues to be seen today in movies like Pirates of the Caribbean with swarthy sailors singing “yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum,” bloodthirsty buccaneers, and, of course, one-legged sailors with parrots perched on their shoulders. Treasure Island has been adapted for radio, theatre, film, and television, and remains one of the most popular novels to be dramatized.

Poet and novelist Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was the author of a number of classic books for young readers, including Treasure Island , Kidnapped, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Mr. Stevenson was often ill as a child and spent much of his youth confined to his nursery, where he first began to compose stories even before he could read, and where he was cared for by his nanny, Alison Cunningham, to whom A Child's Garden of Verses is dedicated.
