Shiver me timbers! From treasure maps marked with an cross to one-legged sailors with parrots on their shoulders, the influence of Treasure Island on contemporary portrayals of pirates is considerable.
When Jim Hawkins picks up the oilskin packet from Captain Flint's sea chest and finds a treasure map, he is catapulted into the adventure of a lifetime. As cabin-boy on the ship Hispaniola, with its crew of treacherous pirates led by Long John Silver, Jim finds himself in a world of villains and unexpected heroes, on a quest for buried treasure.
