Treasure Island and The Ebb-Tide

Robert Louis Stevenson

Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd

Format: Paperback

This is the “Penguin English Library Edition” of “Treasure Island” and “The Ebb-Tide” by Robert Louis Stevenson. '“One more step, Mr Hands,” said I, “and I'll blow your brains out”'. In “Treasure Island”, a weathered old sailor known as Billy Bones arrives at the inn of young Jim Hawkins' parents - and it is the start of an adventure beyond anything he could have imagined. For when Bones dies mysteriously, Jim stumbles across a map of a mysterious island in his sea chest - where 'X' marks the spot of a stash of buried pirate gold. Setting sail with his friends on the ship Hispaniola to recover the treasure, Jim soon realizes that he's not the only one who knows about the hoard. Suddenly he is thrown into a world of treachery, mutiny, castaways and murder and, at the centre of it all, is the charming but sinister Long John Silver, who will stop at nothing to grab his share of the loot. “The Ebb-Tide”, a short novel published the year of Stevenson's death, is also a rollicking seafaring adventure, narrating the voyage of a stolen ship whilst exploring such themes as imperialism, violence, dishonesty, Christianity and corruption.“The Penguin English Library” contains 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
