    Fanny was now divorced and recovered from her own illness, and she came to his bedside and nursed him to recovery. The idea for Treasure Island was ignited by a map that Stevenson had drawn for his year-old stepson; Stevenson had conjured a pirate adventure story to accompany the drawing, and it was serialized in the boys' magazine Young Folks from October to January This be the verse you grave for me: Here he lies where he longed to be; Home is the sailor, home from sea, And the hunter home from the hill. Livesey gives him what he most craves cheeseGunn reveals that he has found the treasure. Hawkins dies shortly after the beginning of the story. He spends his part of the treasure on his education, marries, and becomes part owner of a full-rigged ship.

    Archie speaks against the capital punishment and considering own father sentenced the man. Completing 15 chapters in as many days, Stevenson was interrupted by illness and, after leaving Scotland, continued working on the first draft outside London. Long John Silver's parrot is named after Captain Flint. Silver is deceitful and disloyal, greedy and visceral, and does not care about human relations. His evil self takes the form of the repulsive Mr Hyde.

    This is a great book for year olds, although some of the Scots dialect can be a bit hard to understand and may be a bit off-putting for some kids. Silver is a powerful mixture of charisma and self-destructiveness, individualism and recklessness. Jim discovers that the crew of the Hispaniola includes pirates, led by a personable one-legged man named Long John Silver, the cook of the ship. Jim flees deeper into the heart of the island, where he encounters a half-crazed man named Ben Gunn.
