Post Stevenson, Robert Louis: Kidnapped. v1. 2 Jun 07

"Kidnapped" is a historical novel that tells of the boy David Balfour's pursuit of his inheritance and his alliance with Alan Breck in the intrigues of Jacobite troubles in Scotland. The book is set around 18th century Scottish events, notably the "Appin Murder", which occurred near Ballachulish in 1752 in the aftermath of the Jacobite Rising. Many of the characters, and one of the principals, Alan Breck Stewart, were real people. The political situation of the time is skilfully portrayed from different viewpoints, and the plight of the highlanders treated sympathetically.

Although perhaps less well-known than works such as "Treasure Island", my personal opinion is that "Kidnapped" is a much better "adventure story" and a wonderful read for both children and adults.

Enjoy!

Naturally - it's on my list! There's a nice illustrated version of it on PG (under its alterate title of "David Balfour") - that's the one I'll do.
