Overview

The famous adventure novel, Treasure Island, written by Robert Louis Stevenson in a new beautiful Pook Press edition, with illustrations by N. C. Wyeth

A swashbuckling tale of pirates, maps and treasure. The story begins with an old sailor who appears an inn on the west English coast, talking of a sea chest and secret treasure map. When the sailor dies, his charge is left with Jim, the innkeeper’s son, who discovers the chest and map. In no time, Jim is swept into a dangerous quest on the high seas, privy to plots, murder, and mutiny - some whilst concealed in an apple barrel. This is a truly entertaining, action-filled tale that stands the test of time.
