Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Stevenson



"Treasure Island", classic adventure novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, serialised in the magazine Young Folks from October 1881 to January 1882 and published in book form in 1883. Although not the first book about pirates, "Treasure Island" is considered by many to be the best.

"Treasure Island" was first a map that Stevenson drew for the amusement of his stepson. The map proved so interesting that he created a story to go along with it, reading instalments of the story to his family as he finished them. Stevenson’s father, who happened to be visiting on the day of one of those readings, became so attracted to the story that he made plot suggestions, at least two of which were followed (the contents of Billy Bones’s trunk and Jim Hawkins in the apple barrel).
