“Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum.” —Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island

The book follows young Jim Hawkins who finds himself in possession of a treasure map and embarks on a journey to unearth the pirate booty. His adventure takes him through the turbulent waters of morality, and his subsequent coming of age has captivated generations of readers. 

 

Rousing and full of adventure, Stevenson’s Treasure Island is a classic to be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Now available as part of the Word Cloud Classics series, it makes a chic and affordable addition to any library.
