Actually, he was shipped to Barbados, where Bishop's plantation was. It is only later, when Bishop is appointed its Governor, that Jamaica enters the scene. There's also no buried treasure involved, strangely enough.

This is one of my all-time favourite books - I love the escapism of the by now completely familiar adventures. I have a tattered copy of it by my bed (one of the only boks I bothered to lug with me when I moved to Ireland).

Funny thing is, it's a Russian translation. I've never read the book in the original - even seeing the name in Latin letters feels weird.
