It's almost forty years after the events of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island." Jim Hawkins now runs an inn called the Hispaniola on the English coast with his son, Jim, and Long John Silver has returned to England to live in obscurity with his daughter, Natty. One night, Natty approaches young Jim with a proposition: return to Treasure Island and find the rest of the treasure that their fathers left behind. Jim joins Natty aboard a ship, and the new friends set out to sail in their fathers' footsteps. A truly accomplished work of literature--rollicking, heartfelt, and utterly brilliant--that would make Robert Louis Stevenson proud.
