Treasure Island

Summary:

The story is told in the first person by Jim Hawkins. A old sea dog comes to Jim’s inn one day, apparently intending to finish his life there. He hires Jim to keep a watch out for other sailors, but despite all precautions, he is hunted out and served with the black spot(death). Jim and his mother barely escape death when Blind Pew, Black Dog, and other pirates descend on the inn in search of the sea dog’s papers. Jim snatches up a packet of papers to square the sailor’s debt. The packet contained a map showing the location of the pirate Flint’s buried treasure, which Jim, Doctor Livesey, and Squire Trelawney were determine to find. Their crew includes one-legged Long John Silver, a pirate also in search of the treasure. Jim, hidden in an apple barrel, overhears the plans of the crew to mutiny, and he warns his comrades. The battle between the pirates and Jim’s party is an exciting and bloody one, taking place both on the island and aboard ship. Jim escapes from the ship, discovers a marooned sailor, Ben Gunn, who has already found the treasure. Then finally, they get safely aboard the ship with the treasure.
