Kidnapped & Catriona, Paperback / softback Book

Kidnapped & Catriona Paperback / softback

Part of the Wordsworth Children's Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

Set in Scotland in 1751, Kidnapped remains one of the most exciting stories ever written.

Young David Balfour, orphaned then betrayed by his Uncle Ebenezer, his so-called guardian, falls in with Alan Breck, the unscrupulous but heroic champion of the Jacobite cause.

Shipwreck, murder and dramatic escape through the Highlands are just a few of the ingredients of this highly charged tale of intrigue, action and adventure. Catriona, the lesser-known sequel, immediately continues David's story.

Back in Edinburgh, he is caught up in the aftermath of the Appin murder; certain of the accused man's innocence, David's determination to testify on his behalf is impeded by a series of adventures, not least of which is hid passionate but problematic romance with Catriona, granddaughter of Rob Roy MacGregor.

Alan Breck features again, becoming involved in the thrilling attempt to reunite the lovers.

One of his own favourites, Stevenson said of Catriona that he would 'never do a better book'.
