Treasure Island By Robert Louis Stevenson 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 installments of the story to his family as he finished them.
The story follows Jim Hawkins who sets sail, searching for buried treasure and adventure, he quickly finds himself caught up in a deadly mutiny where he must outwit the cunning pirate Long John Silver in order to stay alive.
