is a book I have loved since childhood: it is a cornerstone of my
reading, and of my imagination. Excitement, mystery, intrigue,
suspense, pathos and human sympathy: Stevenson combines all these
things. I have tried to do the same - in a story which honours his
original genius, but at the same time sails its own course.’ - Andrew
Synopsis: "July, 1802. In the marshy eastern reaches of the Thames lies The Hispaniola, an inn kept by Jim Hawkins and his son. Young Jim spends his days roaming the mist-shrouded estuaries, running errands for his father and listening to stories in the taproom; tales of adventures on the high seas, of curses, murder and revenge, black spots and buried treasure - and of a man with a wooden leg."
The audiobook was released in the US by Dreamscape Media on August 7, 2012.
The audiobook is also available as a download from Amazon in both the UK and the US.
