Treasure Island is the ultimate pirate adventure story, replete with treasure and an unforgettable cast, including Jim Hawkins, the boy at the centre of the action; Billy Bones, the pirate with the all important treasure map; Captain Alexander Smollet, the stubborn yet loyal captain of the Hispaniola; Israel Hands, ship's coxswain who tries to kill Jim Hawkins but ends up in Davy Jones' Locker; Ben Gunn, a half-insane and marooned ex-pirate; Pew, a blind ex-pirate who dies when trampled by horses; and, of course, Long John Silver, the famous amputee who was formerly Flint's quartermaster but later becomes the leader of Hispaniola's mutineers. Join this cast for a fantastic adventure and treasure hunt, but watch out for the "Black Spot"-a card with a circular black spot in the middle given to an accused. It means the pirate will be overturned as leader, by force if necessary-or else killed outright. Not impressed? You should be-after all, just being tipped with the Black Spot scared poor Billy Bones to death. This publication of Treasure Island is part of the Qualitas Classics Fireside Series, where pure, ageless classics are present in clean, easy to read reprints.

Two of the finest adventure stories ever writtenMore people are aware of Robert Louis Stevenson's great novels of high adventure than have ever read the original books, for they are enduring favourites for dramatisation on film, television, radio and the stage. There is a simple explanation for this, and that is that quality abides while mediocrity inevitably fades away. Leonaur has brought together two of these wonderful adventures, Treasure Island and The Black Arrow, in one good-value edition. Stevenson, unlike some contemporary writers of 'historical' fiction, always paints an authentic picture of historical periods whether it is in the maritime world of eighteenth century pirates in 'Treasure Island' or the fifteenth century world of the Wars of the Roses against which the action of 'The Black Arrow' is set. 'The Black Arrow' was written after 'Treasure Island' and though it might not be as well known today, was considered by the author to be a superior book. However, it is almost impossible to undervalue either story. 'Treasure Island' features a host of memorable characters including the immortal Long John Silver in a genre defining adventure in search of buried pirate treasure. 'The Black Arrow' combines a story of murder, treachery and revenge in the medieval world that thunders to a climax of bloody battle involving not only the novel's principal characters but also the driven, sinister figure of Richar...

Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is a tale noted for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality – as seen in Long John Silver – unusual for children's literature. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.

With an Introduction by Alex Dolby. Translation by W.H.G. Kingston. Jules Verne (1828-1905) is internationally famous as the author of a distinctive series of adventure stories describing new travel technologies which opened up the world and provided means to escape from it. The collective enthusiasm of generations of readers of his 'extraordinary voyages' was a key factor in the rise of modern science fiction. In The Mysterious Island a group of men escape imprisonment during the American Civil War by stealing a balloon. Blown across the world, they are air-wrecked on a remote desert island. In a manner reminiscent of Robinson Crusoe, the men apply their scientific knowledge and technical skill to exploit the island's bountiful resources, eventually constructing a sophisticated society in miniature. The book is also an intriguing mystery story, for the island has a secret.

The Coral Island - A Tale of the Pacific Ocean - opens with the shipwreck on a Pacific Island of the young friends Ralph Rover and Jack Martin and Peterkin Gray. Despite the pleasurable presence of delicious breadfruit, coconuts, and succulent oysters, the intrepid trio are not alone and they soon witness a battle between rival bands of cannibals led by 'Bloody Bill'.

There is a simple explanation for this, and that is that quality abides while mediocrity inevitably fades away. Leonaur has brought together two of these wonderful adventures, Treasure Island and The Black Arrow, in one good-value edition. Stevenson, unlike some contemporary writers of 'historical' fiction, always paints an authentic picture of historical periods whether it is in the maritime world of eighteenth century pirates in 'Treasure Island' or the fifteenth century world of the Wars of the Roses against which the action of 'The Black Arrow' is set.
