Behind each children's book, behind each bestseller, a sacred text is hidden. Stevenson's novel has been scrutinized, read and re-read a thousand times. It has been used as a model for a map that leads us in search of an island where a cave that represented the sky was located. And in that sky, the stars and planets were represented by diamonds, real diamonds... Both a prelude and a continuation to Raoul Ruiz's film, Treasure Island, made in 1984, In Pursuit of Treasure Island presents itself as the follow-up, or rather a pursuit, of Stevenson's novel. It is a formidable example of the way Ruiz parodies the text and plunges the story inside the story before losing the reader in a labyrinth of strange images.

Treasure Island, published in 1883, popularized the now familiar characters of pirates and brought them to rum-swilling life. When an old sailor named Billy Bones dies in the inn belonging to young Jim Hawkins’s parents, he leaves a greasy old map on which an “X” marks the spot where treasure is buried. Jim joins the crew of a ship in pursuit of Bones’s treasure, and on the seas meets up with Long John Silver, a peg-legged pirate who has infiltrated their ranks. Jim must survive mutinies and counter-mutinies, face hand-to-hand combat with drunken sailors, and outwit double-crossing thieves before the treasure can be his.

Treasure Island is an adventure classic written by Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". Its influence is enormous on our own perception of pirates, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders. Stevenson stated "Treasure Island came out of the great Captain Johnson's History of the Notorious Pirates.", which is included in this edition in its entirety with all the incredible life stories of the notorious world famous pirates that inspired Stevenson and are also mentioned in the novel.

Watts turns the novel itself into a treasure map, following “landmarks of change” to discover how the author fulfills readers’ expectations on multiple levels as the characters adapt to an imperfect, often terrifying world. “The way Jim outwits Silver and the other pirates is a useful lesson for life and writing,” says Watts.

In this Guide, Leslie Watts shares her map, so climb aboard and let’s set sail.

After Captain Flint dies in Savannah from the effects of yellow fever and too much rum, young Dick Brown and his pirate shipmates set out to find Flint's hidden treasure. Their quest leads them first to England and then back to the Caribbean, searching for the vital chart that will lead them to the spot. On the island where Flint buried untold wealth in gold and jewels, Long John Silver, Dick Brown and the pirate crew struggle to win control of the chart. Will they finally succeed and will their victory bring them the riches they dream of? Or will Dick find that there is more to life than gold, and that true love has a value far beyond sparkling jewels? Readers' Reviews "I was a bit sceptical at first believing that no one could add to or improve on Treasure Island, but I was mistaken. The author does a great job of telling the story from another angle and continuing on after the original story ends. I have always enjoyed family stories and this reads just like one as it is written from a father to his daughter. It just seems so much more personal written in this style. The plot and the characters are very well done and this one will be difficult for you to put down." Maura Coffee Time Romance & More "This is beautifully written, and cleverly put together. The sounds and smells of the sea, the loss of men and friends and any sense of attachment to man or principle pervade this work. The men - from Long John Silver to Billy Bones, have names that offer the sound and sense of the times. They weigh anchor and dream of the nearest taverns, wait to ambush ships full-laden from Charleston. Our narrator shares views of the people they see - especially the women of the West Indies. Yet, to our young narrator- none can compare to the beautiful Isabel. We see her importance early on - but are swept back into the story of this young man's days in England, his time at sea, and the pursuit of treasure which would make many men famous. Unexpected and unpredictable turns crop up, just when you think you can predict how it will all turn out." Snapdragon Long & Short Romance Reviews
