About the Novel: Treasure Island is one of the most perfect examples of an exciting classic adventure tale. Masterfully crafted, this stunning book of piracy on the tropic seas is an unforgettable tale of treachery between good and evil. Developed from an imaginary map that Stevenson and his stepson made while on vacation, Treasure Island is an all-time classic for those who love romance and adventure. Perhaps the reason for the book's allure to children is the famous hero-villain character of Long John Silver, with his unscrupulous buccaneer-rogues on their quest for gold.
