Chapter 1 Jim Hawkins’ Story I
Chapter 2 Dr Livesey’s Story
Chapter 3 Jim’s Story II
‘Tomorrow I’m going to Bristol,’ said Mr Trelawney. ‘I’m going
to buy a ship and find sailors. Jim, you and Dr Livesey are going to
come with me to look for the treasure!’
Jim Hawkins works in his father’s inn by the sea. One day an old
sailor comes to stay. He watches the sea and the ships. He is ill.
He is afraid. But what - or who - is he afraid of?
Very soon Jim understands, because the old man has a map. A
lot of people are interested in that map - and some of them are
very dangerous people. Jim Hawkins is going to meet them when
he sails in the Hispaniola to Treasure Island. It will be a journey
with many difficulties . . .
Robert Louis Stevenson was born in 1850 in Edinburgh, Scot-
land and began writing when he was a boy. He finished his first
book when he was sixteen.
He went to many different countries in his life. He was often
dangerously ill and he wanted to find a place with warm weather
where he could live and do his writing. In 1888, he went by ship
to the Pacific islands, and after 1890 he lived on the island of
Samoa, with his wife, mother and son. The Samoans called him
‘Tusitala’ - ‘the story-teller’.
He wrote many different books and stories. Treasure Island
(1883) is his most famous book but Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
(1886) is also very well-known. Stevenson died in 1894 on
