Lady Vivien, a young Englishwoman, has had no news from her husband in three long years. That was when Lord Hasting set off to explore the New World, where he apparently disappeared. But one day, she receives a message: her husband wants her to join him. Deep in Inca territory, he has discovered the lost city of Guyanacapac. He hopes to carry off its hidden treasure — but he needs her help.
Although she is pregnant with another man’s child, Lady Vivien decides to join her husband, along with a group of unscrupulous adventurers. Among them is a certain Long John Silver, a thoroughly dangerous pirate. The voyage will take them to distant lands, up the length of the Amazon River and deep into the jungle…
Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson, this story brings to light the life of Long John Silver, the pirate who appeared in Treasure Island. Xavier Dorison has imagined this character’s unusual adventures, from his departure from England into the remotest lands of South America, among the Inca Indians. A tale of adventure, suitable for all audiences.
