Spirited, romantic, and full of danger, Kidnapped is Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic of high adventure. Beloved by generations, it is the saga of David Balfour, a young heir whose greedy uncle connives to do him out of his inherited fortune and plots to have him seized and sold into slavery. But honor, loyalty, and courage are rewarded; the orphan and castaway survives kidnapping and shipwreck, is rescued by a daredevil of a rogue, and makes a thrilling escape to freedom across the wild highlands of Scotland.

Acclaimed by Henry James as Robert Louis Stevenson’s best novel, Kidnapped achieves what Stevenson called, “the particular crown and triumph of the artist … not simply to convince, but to enchant.”

    " The first of five volumes of a graphic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Kidnapped." Tells the tale of sixteen-year-old David Balfour, whose uncle has him kidnapped. David escapes and is caught up in the rebellion of Scottish highlanders against English rule. "

    " You just have to love RLS. He is the master of classic action-adventure. The kind of book that stuffy critics love to refer to as "boys'" novels. Well, I happen to love boys and their novels. :) "

    " Wow, what an adventure! I recommend this book to anyone--and if you're turned off by the complicated language of old (as I sometimes am), give in and listen to it on audio. Jim Weiss does a pretty fantastic reading. "

    " I'm sorry that I had not read this book before now. A long stay in Scotland is on my bucket list, especially to the Heberdies. The descriptions of the lonely landscape and the Highland society took me to this special place. The twists and turns of the story had a rhythm that was suited to the way the book was originally published which feels a bit choppy to us now. Sadly, hard copies of the book could not be found in either my local bookstore nor my public library . Happily the Gutnburgh project has made it available electronically. "
