Never out of print since its first publication in book form in 1883, Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island is a thrilling narrative of pirates, hidden treasure, and peril on the high seas that is as popular with adults as with children. Here, at last, is a worthy sequel, written in the same spirit as Stevenson's brilliant original.

Now a sturdy young man of twenty-one, Jim Hawkins, the cabin boy who narrated Treasure Island, is content with his quiet life as landlord of the family inn. Nothing could induce him to return to the accursed island. But when a mysterious and beautiful stranger comes begging for his immediate assistance in locating the pirate Joseph Tait, Jim is powerless to resist. Last seen marooned on Treasure Island, Tait was the roughest pirate of the lot. What could a woman of Grace Richardson's elegance and refinement want with such a reprobate? The answer leads Jim back to the South Seas, to violence, mystery, and dangers he never dared imagine.

A brilliant re-creation of the high style and spellbinding suspense of the original, The Curse of Treasure Island is destined to become a classic in its own right.
