Some brief overview of this book

Kidnapped is a finely honed, stirring adventure story about the orphan David Balfour, who, after escaping through the Scottish Highlands from the hands of his villainous uncle, becomes involved in Scotlands struggle for independence. In this edition, Professor Barry Menikoff draws on a rare manuscript to reproduce the text as Stevenson originally wrote it, restoring Stevensons masterly punctuation and recovering distinctive and often singular language that was altered or deleted in subsequent editions. The effect is to deepen and illuminate the novels Scottish texture. This edition also includes the drawings that accompanied the text during its initial serialization, and a gazetteer of place-names.—BOOK JACKET.

In 1751 in Scotland, cheated out of his inheritance by a greedy uncle who has him kidnapped and put on a ship to the Carolinas, seventeen-year-old David Balfour escapes to the Highlands with the help of the Jacobite Alan Breck Stewart and there encounters further danger and intrigue as he attempts to clear his name and regain his property.
