In the same spirit of high adventure as Stevenson’s Treasure Island comes Kidnapped, the tale of a young Scottish boy, David Balfour, in 1751, five years after the Battle of Culloden ended Bonnie Prince Charlie’s desperate attempt to gain the throne of England. David’s evil uncle, Ebenezer Balfour, arranges to have the boy kidnapped to keep him from discovering that Ebenezer’s family estate, called Shaws, really belongs to David.

The boy is shipped out aboard the brig Covenant, where he meets the dashing Alan Breck Stewart, one of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s supporters and a survivor of the Culloden disaster. Their adventures and escapes are set against the background of the Scottish Highlands and those tumultuous years of history. But never fear; this is a book written first and foremost as an adventure story for older children.
