Transcript of treasure island

report by: kaelan the publishing treasure island was published in 1883 by Robert
Louis Stevenson, age: thirty. the idea of the treasure island story came to Stevenson in his summer cottage when he saw his nephew finishing a map of an island. soon the story was put into the -young folk- magazine under the title either "the sea cook" or "treasure island". When the book was first written, stevenson wrote at a rate of a chapter a day for 15 days straight. this failed in increasing sales of the magazine so stevenson printed the book treasure island which had 34 chapters and 6 parts all which were narrated by a boy named Jim Hawkins, except for chapters 16-18. during the printing the map of treasure island was lost so stevenson recreated the island. summary the story begins in a small inn with a
boy named Jim Hawkins and an older
man called "captain" who fears a one
legged sea-man. soon captain dies of
of a stroke. among the captains
possesions jim finds a map to "flint's
treasure". jim then shows the squire and
doctor the map. they set sail for the
island. On the ship jim becomes friends
with a one legged sea-man named long
john silver. while hiding in an apple barrel
jim over hears long john's plan for
mutiny. ariving at shore jim runs into the
woods where he meets ben gunn who
allies himself with jim and his friends. After two battles and the death of israle
hands, jim was captured by pirates after
stealing the ship. with the map the pirates search for the treasure and are ambushed by ben gunn who has the treasure and has left it to jim. jim then sails home.

a ransom for julius he insisted he was
worth more... the ransome was raised.

forces in fighting pirates. later in 67B.C. the
vikings became famous pirates. muslim
pirates began to take over the seas
between europe and asia. it soon spread
to the indian coast, then east asia (japan),
then the rest of europe, africa and america,
and the caribbean. the execution of
