Clear the decks for one of the greatest swashbuckling stories ever told. Masterfully crafted, Treasure Island is a stunning yarn of piracy on the fiery tropic seas—an unforgettable tale of treachery that embroils a host of legendary swashbucklers, from honest young Jim Hawkins to sinister, two-timing Israel Hands, to evil incarnate, blind Pew. But above all, Treasure Island is a complex study of good and evil, as embodied by the hero-villain, Long John Silver, the merry, unscrupulous buccaneer-rogue whose greedy quest for gold cannot help but win the heart of every soul who ever longed for romance, treasure and adventure. Since its publication in 1883, Treasure Island has provided an enduring literary model for such eminent writers as Anthony Hope, Graham Greene, and Jorge Luis Borges.

Quotes & Awards

  • "Young Jim Hawkins recounts this first-person adventure of piracy and treasure hunting, recounting his "life before the main." Tim Gregory narrates each word with loving tones as he revives this classic tale for today's listener. Gregory never falters over the all-too-familiar nautical and piratical phrases. Long John Silver, Black Dog, and other sailors conspire against Jim and his "partners," Dr. Livesey and Squire Trelawney, in their search for treasure on a deserted island. Bloody adventure and cruel murder are brought to life in Gregory's evenly paced tones. As the narrator portrays the young hero, the listener, regardless of age, is drawn into Stevenson's swashbuckling story of the quest for treasure in the tropics of Hispaniola.

  • “The swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime. With its dastardly plot and motley crew of rogues and villains, it seems unlikely that children will ever say no to this timeless classic.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • Treasure Island…must have been the first book I ever read from start to finish, with unforgettable characters, Long John Silver, Blind Pew, Ben Gunn...The Black Spot still terrifies me.”

    Sting, multi-Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and musician

  • “A rereading of Stevenson’s novel after all those years says nothing to me so much as that good books—and Treasure Island is a very good book—really have lives of their own, entirely apart from movies and other adaptations of them.”

    Washington Post

  • Treasure Island is a vision not only of white skeletons but also green palm trees and sapphire seas.”

    G. K. Chesterton

  • “I don’t know of a more gripping tale of derring-do on the high seas, with its desperate search for hidden gold on a tropical island.”

    Independent (London)
