Treasure Island Treasure Island is an adventure novel 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 -- unusual for children's literature. 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. - Summary by Kara and Wikipedia Genre(s): Action & Adventure Fiction, Historical Fiction, Nautical & Marine Fiction A Novel - BONUS - Included FREE Audio Books Inside (Classic Book Collection) 01 - The Old Sea-dog at the Admiral Benbow 02 - Black Dog Appears and Disappears 03 - The Black Spot 04 - The Sea-chest 05 - The Last of the Blind Man 06 - The Captain's Papers 07 - I Go to Bristol 08 - At the Sign of the Spy-glass 09 - Powder and Arms 10 - The Voyage 11 - What I Heard in the Apple Barrel 12 - Council of War 13 - How My Shore Adventure Began 14 - The First Blow 15 - The Man of the Island 16 - Narrative Continued by the Doctor: How the Ship Was Abandoned 17 - Narrative Continued by the Doctor: The Jolly-boat's Last Trip 18 - Narrative Continued by the Doctor: End of the First Day's Fighting 19 - Narrative Resumed by Jim Hawkins: The Garrison in the Stockade 20 - Silver's Embassy 21 - The Attack 22 - How My Sea Adventure Began 23 - The Ebb-tide Runs 24 - The Cruise of the Coracle 25 - I Strike the Jolly Roger 26 - Israel Hands 27 - ''Pieces of Eight'' 28 - In the Enemy's Camp 29 - The Black Spot Again 30 - On Parole 31 - The Treasure-hunt -- Flint's Pointer 32 - The Treasure-hunt -- The Voice Among the Trees 33 - The Fall of a Chieftain 34 - And Last Click the "Add to Cart" button to start your reading journey RISK FREE BONUS - Included Exclusive Collection of FREE Audio Books Downloads in MP3 Format Inside.
