    Embark on a swashbuckling adventure with Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Treasure Island. One of the most lively seafaring stories of all time, this pirate tale follows the adventures of Jim Hawkins and his crew who set sail for Treasure Island to find the lost loot of Captain Flint and do battle with dastardly rogues and villains, including the notorious Long John Silver. Robert Louis Stevenson (), a Scottish author of novels, poems, and essays, is best known for the classic books Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. A literary celebrity during his lifetime, Stevenson remains popular for his celebrated contributions to the adventure and horror genres.

    A nice collection of five classic adventure stories. Some of these I had read before, others were new to me. Entertaining and classic reads. The stories: 1. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson 2. The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling 3. Gullivers Travels by Jonathan Swift 4. White Fang by Jack London /5(7).   With stories such as Treasure Island and Kidnapped, Stevenson revived Daniel Defoe's novel of romantic adventure, adding to it psychological analysis. While these stories and others, such as David Balfour and The Master of Ballantrae (), are stories of adventure, they are at the same time fine studies of : Sterling Children's Books.

    It was in October , that this story began to appear as a serial in an English magazine called "Young Folks". The title then was "The Sea Cook, or Treasure Island", but when published in book form in May , the name was simply "Treasure Island", a name which has taken its place among the titles of far older s: K. Treasure Island is a fantastic book now don't get me wrong but this shorter knock off did not suit the bill. Treasure Island is an classic adventure novel which tells a fantastic mysterious story but in my opinion this recreated version just does not quite achieve what the original achieved/5(49).
