Relive one of the greatest adventure stories of all time in this stunning, unabridged edition featuring bold, dynamic woodcuts by John Lawrence. 'Fifteen men on a dead man's chest - yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!' A treasure map where X marks the spot, a schooner set to sail, a one-legged seaman with a parrot on his shoulder, a boy whose bravery will be tested by murder, mutiny, and betrayal - Robert Louis Stevenson's well-loved tale is the ultimate swashbuckling adventure. From the sleepy English coast, over the raging high seas, to a tropical island concealing a buried treasure, this story of friendship and greed, loyalty and courage stars an unforgettable cast of characters: young Jim Hawkins, the terrifying Blind Pew, the wild man Ben Gunn, and one of literature's most dastardly villains, the charming, crafty, and utterly unscrupulous Long John Silver. Superbly illustrated by the celebrated woodcut artist John Lawrence, this is the definitive edition of an enduring classic.
