Kidnapped (Bantam Classics)

Robert Louis Stevenson


lively, romantic, and whole of risk, Kidnapped is Robert Louis Stevenson's vintage of excessive event. loved by means of generations, it's the saga of David Balfour, a tender inheritor whose grasping uncle connives to do him out of his inherited fortune and plots to have him seized and offered into slavery. yet honor, loyalty, and braveness are rewarded; the orphan and castaway survives kidnapping and shipwreck, is rescued via a daredevil of a rogue, and makes an exciting get away to freedom around the wild highlands of Scotland.

Acclaimed by means of Henry James as Robert Louis Stevenson's top novel, Kidnapped achieves what Stevenson referred to as, "the specific crown and triumph of the artist...not just to persuade, yet to enchant."
