The Island of Thieves

New or Used: $19.05
The paper is old and torn. The scribbled black letters are almost impossible to read. But they hold the key to a mystery worth millions. "Our Captayne took the pinnace ashore and I went with him and 6 men also, who were sworne by God to be secret in all they saw. Here we buried 3 chests filled with gold and 5 more chests filled with silver..." Tom Trelawney's uncle discovered this ancient piece of paper in South America. Now he is going back there to hunt for a hidden fortune. The quest will take him from a sleepy English town to the wild cities, bleak mountains and rugged coast of Peru, where he will battle local bandits and search for a priceless treasure. Will Tom go too? Will he join his uncle and embark on an adventure which will change his life for ever?
