Description


THE RIP-ROARING SEQUEL TO THE GREATEST ADVENTURE EVER TOLD
Almost forty yearsfollowing the events of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island, " Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver have seemingly put their maritime adventures to rest. Jim has settled on the English coast with his son Jim, and Silver has returned to rural England with his daughter Natty. While their escapades may have ended, for Jim and Natty the adventure is only just beginning.
One night, Natty approaches young Jim with a proposition: return to Treasure Island and find the remaining treasure that their fathers left behind. As they set sail in their fathers' footsteps, Jim and Nattycannot imagine what awaits them. Murderous pirates, long-held grudges, noxious greed, and wily deception lurk wickedly in the high seas, and disembarking onto Treasure Island only proves more perilous. Their search for buried treasure leaves every last wit tested and ounce of courage spent. And the adventure doesn't end there, since they still have to make their way home...

Praise from the UK for Silver

“Elegant, affectionate homage to Robert Louis Stevenson … A piece of writing born of genuine love and respect for the original.” 
The Sunday Times

Deeply pleasing and convivial. . . . As with Treasure Island, Silver is left open to the possibility of its own sequel, and surely no one would wish Motion to swallow the anchor.”
The Guardian

“[Silver] reeks of authenticity, cunning, intrigue, suspense and adventure.  It’s brilliant, and for all ages.”
Daily Mirror

“[Motion] reinvents Stevenson’s world to reveal its dark underside, illuminating both its mysterious beauty and its grim immortality. . . . Stands in its own right as a companion volume to a literary classic”
The Observer

“[An] elegant, thrilling sequel. . . . Motion’s prose, vivid and glowingly poetic, is a brilliant counterpoint to the fascinating action.”
The Daily Mail
