Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island is entertaining fare for young readers. The story begins when mutineer Billy Bones, once first mate to the pirate Captain Flint, dies at an inn, leaving behind a treasure map. Young Jim finds the map, and takes it to Squire Trelawney and Dr. Livesey. The treasure seekers board a schooner that, unbeknownst to them, is manned by the pirate Long John Silver’s crew. After a mutiny, Jim and his allies fight it out with the mutineers on Treasure Island. Jim is able to bring the ship to an inlet, returning to the stockade only to find that Silver and his pirates have arrived there first. Silver strikes a deal with Jim, promising help in return for the treasure map. A search shows that the treasure has already been taken, but it is later revealed the treasure is secreted in the cave of Ben Gunn, a man marooned on the island. The virtuous are rewarded with their share of the gold, while Silver disappears with his loot. All depart for England, leaving behind a cache of silver that was never found. Adventure lovers will relish the plot twists and turns in Treasure Island, a guaranteed page-turner.
