Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Treasure Island will surely become — it must already have become, and will remain — in its way a classic." Henry James.

An absorbing tale of buccaneers and a romantic quest for treasure, Treasure Island is also the portrait of the briliantly drawn character, Long John Silver.

Review:

"Pleasant to read, scrupulously edited." Tan Duncan, Yale Univ.

Synopsis:

Unrivaled in literature, Stevenson's Treasure Island is among the most delightful adventure romances of all time. From young Jim Hawkins' first encounter with an old buccaneer and his tresure map to the final daring skirmish with the treacherous pirate Long John Silver, this classic work enchants and fuels the imagination with beautiful illustrations.
