Fifteen men on the dead man's chest- Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum! When young Jim Hawkins discovers a map showing the way to Captain Flint's treasure, he and Squire Trelawney set sail on the Hispaniola to search for the gold.

Can brave Jim outwit the most infamous pirate ever to sail the high seas? Will he escape from Treasure Island alive? BACKSTORY: Learn the truth about pirates and add to your seafaring vocabulary!
