Treasure Island prequel


The Independent tells me about the prequel to Treasure Island, which will be 125 years old in November. John Drake has written Flint and Silver, and he’s prepared to shatter a few myths.

One of the biggest myths that Mr Drake wanted to dispel was that pirates buried their treasure: “This is nonsense. Pirates never bury their treasure. There is no known proven example of pirates burying their treasure on an island. Pirates led short, violent lives and when they got money, they went to an island and spent it on booze and girls and when they’d run out they went and got some more.”
