Summary

When old drunken sailor Billy Bones dies at the Admiral Benbow Inn, the innkeeper's son, Jim Hawkins, finds a map among the seaman's possessions. The local physician, Doctor Livesey, and the squire, Trelawney, believe the map is of an island where the infamous pirate Captain Flint buried his treasure. They decide to buy a ship to go find it, and Jim decides to join the crew as cabin boy.

They meet the skeptical Captain Smollett and Long John Silver, a one-legged cook with a parrot. Jim soon discovers that Silver is just one of several crewmen who was also part of Captain Flint's crew and that they're planning a mutiny. After they reach the island and the pirates rise up, Jim is separated from the others loyal to Captain Smollett. Wandering around, he learns that they are not alone on the island after all, and that perhaps the treasure has already been found.

Treasure Island has been entertaining readers of all ages for 130 years and is just as witty and as thrilling today as it was when it was first published. This special edition includes the much-loved original text along with new maps and an exclusive foreword.
