Treasure Island
There is an old crippled man knocking at the Admiral Benbow Inn. He calls
himself Captain Billy Bones. He lives in fear of a one-legged man, because Billy

Bones has a map in his suitcase that the one-legged man wants. But, Billy Bones
doesn’t know that the one-legged man, Captain Flint, has died. One day a blind
beggar named "Blind Pew" comes to see Billy Bones at the Inn and gives him
the "Black Spot", a mark of immediate death between pirate crews. Billy

Bones gives Jim Hawkins, the owner of the Inns’ son, a key to the suitcase
before he dies. Jim is fourteen years old and in very good shape. Jim takes the
suitcase to Dr. Livesey, a smart young man in his mid thirties, and Squire

Trelawney, an old rich man who lives very lavishly and pampered. They open the
suitcase and find a map that belonged to Captain Flint, who is the most popular
dead pirate around. The Doctor and Squire decide to hunt for the treasure and
ask Jim to come along. The squire buys a ship that they had to have built and
named it the Hispaniola. They hire Captain Smollert, Long John Silver the cook,
and the rest of the boats crew to sail the ship. The ship sets off from England
for an island in the Caribbean. The night before they get to the island, Jim
overhears Silver and a few of the other ship hands talking about taking over the

Hispaniola to find the map. Jim relays the information back to the Doctor,

Squire and the Captain. Captain Smollert sends the crew to the island the next
morning and Jim decides to go too. When Jim gets to the island he meets Ben Gunn.

Ben has been stranded on the island for three years. Ben tells Jim about a boat
that Ben made incase he needed it. When Dr. Livesey, Squire Trelawney, and

Captain Smollert get to the island they find an old stockade. When the crew
finds out that their plan for mutiny has been told, they start to attack the
stockade. Captain Smollert is shot in the shoulder and injured pretty bad. The

Doctor and Squire end up killing most of the pirates. Jim set off for the

Hispaniola in the small boat that Ben Gunn made. Jim wanted to get the

Hispaniola closer to the stockade. A pirate is able to get onto the Hispaniola
and Jim has to fight him off. Jim gets the boat where he wants it and returns
back to the stockade. When he gets back to the stockade, he is captured by Long

John Silver and forced to give up the map. Who will find the treasure first?

Will it be Long John Silver and the pirates, or will it be the Doctor, Squire,

Jim and the Captain? Read Treasure Island to find out! The main idea that Robert

Louis Stevenson made in Treasure Island was how "good" wins over "evil",
using strategies and tactics to defeat the pirates. For example, the good
characters, Jim Hawkins and Dr. Livesey, took cover in a high ground stockade
when the pirates attacked. Good ends up winning the battle at the stockade.

Another example of good and evil is when it is discovered where the treasure map
may be. Long John Silver hands Jim a gun because he knows a fight is about to
happen. All of a sudden, Dr. Livesey, Ben Gunn and Squire Trelawney open fire
from the forest and kill a pirate and the other pirates run away because they
are scared. The pirates are left on the island without many supplies, since this
is the outlaw’s code of honor as their punishment. "The Attack" was the
climax of the story and was the most exciting part. It was dramatic and
suspenseful. "The Attack" was when the good characters fought the pirates
for the map of the treasure. On pages 178-179 in Chapter 21, "The Attack" is
described like this: "So some seconds passed, till suddenly Joyce whipped up
his musket and fired. The report had scarcely died away ere it was repeated and
repeated from without in a scattering volley, shot behind shot, like a string of
geese, from every side of the enclosure. Several bullets struck the log-house,
but not one entered; and, as the smoke cleared away and vanished, the stockade
and the woods around it looked as quiet and empty as before. Not a bough waved,
not the gleam of a musket-barrel betrayed the presence of our foes." Another
