Jim Hawkins is just a boy trying to do the best he can running an inn with his widowed mother when adventure and danger literally walk through the door in the form of a pirate! He is left with a treasure map and the warning, "Beware the one-legged man!"
Jim goes sailing in search of treasure with Squire Trelawney, Dr. Livesey, and Captain Smollett. Put under the tutelage of the ship's cook, Long John Silver, Jim learns much of the sea-faring life and gains a great friend. But where treasure is concerned, honor and friendship can be held cheap. As they near the island, the ship's crew mutinies, and Jim has to decide where his loyalties are and what it means to be honorable.
Set sail aboard the Hispaniola with the fearless Jim and the formidable Long John Silver!
