    At their first port, where they will sign on more crew, Silver steals a bag of money and escapes. Right from the racy opening chapter where the young hero Jim Hawkins encounters a mysterious guest, Billy Bones, at the Admiral Benbow Inn run by his widowed mother, the tale carries the reader off on an edge-of-the-seat roller-coaster ride of non-stop action and drama. They seek assistance from their neighbours who are too frightened to do any more than send for the revenue officers. Aroundthe latter genre became one of the most popular fictional styles in Great Britain, perhaps because of the philosophical interest in Rousseau and Chateaubriand 's " noble savage ". Women were excluded and then I had an idea for Long John Silver from which I promised myself funds of entertainment; to take an admired friend of mine, to deprive him of all his finer qualities and higher graces of temperament, and to leave him with nothing but his strength, his courage, his quickness, and his magnificent geniality, and to try to express these in terms of the culture of a raw tarpaulin".

    Item Type: Book. Offshore is at the heart of the matter. The book is bound in the original green silk with the title on the spine in bright gilt in the same format as the First Edition. After being visited by a former mate named Black Dog, Billy suffers a stroke. He is an alcoholic and is useless as a first mate. Livesey, Ben Gunn, and the others fire on the pirate band, which scatters throughout the island.

    Jim has impulsively joined the shore party, and now in running away from them he encounters a half-crazy Englishman, Ben Gunn, who tells him he was marooned here and can help against the mutineers in return for passage home and part of the treasure. He is an alcoholic and is useless as a first mate. He is later killed by Israel Hands in a drunken fight on the Hispaniola. These escape routes transform the merely powerful into the untouchable.
