Young orphan and heir David Balfour is victimized by his miserly Uncle Ebenezer, who has him kidnapped and sold into slavery on a ship bound for the Carolinas. But a shipwreck frees David, who then meets David Break, a Scotsman returning from political exile. Together, they witness a murder, and when suspicion falls on them, they undertake a dangerous journey across the Scottish Highlands.
Set in the tumultuous times of the Jacobite rebellion, Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped is a classic adventure story that has enthralled generations.
