In the eastern reaches of the Thames lies the Hispaniola, an inn kept by Jim Hawkins and his son. Late one night, a mysterious girl named Natty arrives on the river with a request for Jim from her father—Long John Silver. Aged and weak but still possessing a strange power, the pirate proposes Jim and Natty sail to Treasure Island in search of Captain Flint’s hidden bounty. But the thrill of the ocean odyssey gives way to terror as the Nightingale reaches its destination, for it seems Treasure Island is not as uninhabited as it once was.
Silver is a worthy sequel to Treasure Island, a work of extraordinary authenticity and imaginative power from one of England’s greatest writers.
