by Robert Louis Stevenson
First serialized in a children’s magazine between 1881 and 1882 as a coming-of-age story for young readers, Treasure Island has transcended its time and intended audience. Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel forged the template for the tale of pirate adventure, and many of its dramatic elements—including buried treasure, treasure maps, and pirate oaths, among others—have become iconic parts of virtually every pirate adventure story written in its wake.
