'Treasure Island' is an enduring adventure tale for all time and one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. A defining work of its genre, the swashbuckling, coming-of-age story of pirates, sea battles and a quest for buried treasure begins with the passing of an old sea captain. Young Jim Hawkins has no idea what lies in store just across the horizon. With the old captain's map in hand, he soon finds himself part of a motley crew that sails in search of the buried treasure. However, the charismatic and villainous Long John Silver has other plans, and Jim must step up to save the ship, his friends and the treasure.
