Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Classic adventure novel, set in the year 1751, centers around David Balfour, a young Scotsman orphaned by the death of his father. Betrayed by his uncle, the young hero is shanghaied and headed for bondage in the New World, until a swashbuckling highlander comes to his rescue. Stirring, suspenseful; considered by Stevenson his best fiction.

Synopsis:

Swordfights, shipwrecks, and life on the run — Kidnapped teems with fast-paced action and glorious adventure, all recounted with the mastery of a great storyteller. The classic tale takes place in 1751, and concerns David Balfour, a young Scotsman orphaned by the death of his father. Through the treachery of his uncle, the young hero finds himself shanghaied and headed for bondage in the New World. Thanks to the intervention of a dashing Highlander, Alan Breck Steward, David eludes his shipboard captors and joins Steward on a wild flight through the highlands, pursued by both the King's forces and a notorious clan of Highland Jacobites. Flavorful, suspenseful, and peopled by realistic characters, this stirring novel was considered by the author to be his finest work of fiction. Complete and unabridged, this inexpensive edition will thrill young readers.
