Set in the aftermath of the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, Kidnapped sustains a gripping narrative. It is told by David Balfour, a young Whig and Lowlander who is tracked by his miserly uncle; survives attempted murder, kidnap, and shipwreck; and, in the company of Alan Breck, a Jacobite, escapes through the Highlands.

Kidnapped is an adventure story in which the tensions run deep, not only between pursuer and pursued but in ancient misunderstandings between the two heroes themselves: Whig and Jacobite, Lowland rationalist and romantic Highlander.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A masterpiece.”

    Henry James

  • “One of the classic coming-of-age stories for children and young adults today.”

    School Library Journal

  • “This tale of high adventure, told simply but colorfully, is woven around a true incident; Stevenson’s characters, from all classes, noble and ignoble, are skillfully drawn and develop convincingly as they pass through kidnappings, battles at sea, murders, and other adventures…David and Alan have contradictory points of view and antithetical sociopolitical commitments; yet they work together and form a lasting bond on the basis of friendship and loyalty that transcend their differences. Here is Stevenson the novelist at his best—forsaking dogma and eschewing ideology in favor of humanistic values. Stevenson was a master storyteller.”
