TREASURE ISLAND, the delightful tale by Robert Louis Stevenson has defined our concept of pirates, perhaps, more than any other. It has it all: buried treasure, the parrot, sea ballads (“Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”). It has one of the most memorable characters in all of literature—Long John Silver! No wonder it has endured as a favorite of young and old since its first publication in 1883. Other Authors on Robert Louis Stevenson: “As a storyteller there isn’t his equal.” —Jack London “...that delightful master of delicate and fanciful prose.” —Oscar Wilde “Stevenson is master of a consummate style, and each phrase is finished as in poetry.” —Gerard Manley Hopkins
