Treasure Island Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Treasure Island

When a pirate comes to young Jim Hawkin's home, which is also an inn, with the warning, "Keep your weather-eye open for a seafaring man with one leg," Jim watches out for him. But then the pirate has a stroke and dies and Jim finds the oilskin packet with a treasure map inside. After showing this map to Dr. Livesey and Squire Trelawny, they decide to go to the island in search of the treasure.   They knew the old pirate's ex-comrads would be looking out for it, too, but they had no idea the crew they would recruit for their ship were those same people. Worse yet, that,"seafaring man with one leg," is aboard too, posing as the ship's cook.
