About this product
- DescriptionRelive 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 onelegged 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. Sweeping a path from the sleepy English coast to 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 John Lawrence, this is the definitive edition of an enduring classic.
