Join Jim Hawkins and Captain Flint on their remarkable sea voyage for mysterious treasure. This classic work will keep young and old captured on this great adventure. From Chapter Ten, “The Voyage,” Stevenson writes,
All that night we were in a great bustle getting things stowed in their place, and boatfuls of the squire’s friends, Mr. Blandly and the like, coming off to wish him a good voyage and a safe return. We never had a night at the ‘Admiral Benbow’ when I had half the work; and I was dog-tired when, a little before dawn, the boatswain sounded his pipe, and the crew began to man the capstan-bars. I might have been twice as weary, yet I would not have left the deck; all was so new and interesting to me—the brief commands, the shrill note of the whistle, the men bustling to their places in the glimmer of the ship’s lanterns.
Originally published in 1883, this complete and unabridged 2008 reissue of Treasure Island is introduced by Eoin Colfer, uses large, easy-to-read print type, and includes author information, things to think about, things to do, and a glossary. It is part of Hewitt’s Grade-8 Lightning Literature program (See Related Items below). From our Guide by Elizabeth Kamath:
Treasure Island, published in 1883, was Stevenson’s first novel. First it was published in parts in a children’s magazine. When it appeared as a book, it was hugely successful. Many famous writers praised it and were inspired by it. It is because of this book that we so often picture pirates as having peg legs or a parrot, or we think that a big X should mark the treasure on a map.
