about

Treasure Island (1883) “is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". First published as a book on 23 May 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks  between 1881–82 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North. Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is a tale known 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 childrens literature now and then. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of piratesis enormous, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands , and one-legged seamen carrying parrots on their shoulders.” (Citation from Wikipedia: The free Encyclopaedia)
