Dead Man's Chest, written as a sequel to Treasure Island, begins with Long John Silver's escape from the merchantman ship Hispaniola at Puerta Plata and culminates with the American Revolution more than a decade later. It describes in rich detail the unholy alliance between this softhearted cutthroat, his teenage nephew, David Noble, and Captain John Paul Jones. Together, they work to retrieve a king's ransom of Spanish gold and jewels from a dead man's chest.More
