Treasure Island

Written by Robert Louis Stevenson

Part of the Collins Classics Series

Treasure Island Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics. 'Fifteen men on the dead man's chest -Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!' When young Jim Hawkins finds an old map showing the location of a hoard of buried treasure, he joins the crew of the Hispaniola who set sail to find it. But they soon have a mutiny on their hands, led by the duplicitous pirate Long John Silver. As the quest turns murderous, Jim's bravery is put to the test, and he discovers much about friendship, loyalty and betrayal on this daring voyage. Treasure Island was serialised in the children's magazine Young Folks before being published in 1883. It has come to be regarded as one of the greatest adventure stories ever told.

About Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Lewis Balfour Stevenson was born on 13 November 1850, changing his second name to 'Louis' at the age of eighteen. He has always been loved and admired by countless readers and critics for 'the excitement, the fierce joy, the delight in strangeness, the pleasure in deep and dark adventures' found in his classic stories and, without doubt, he created some of the most horribly unforgettable characters in literature and, above all, Mr. Edward Hyde.
