It took an epic journey to get back to where he started from...
Arriving at his Uncle's house, David Balfour expects a warm welcome, a hearty meal and friendly conversation.
Instead he is jailed, kidnapped, lost at sea, falsely accused of murder and finds himself on the run with a smuggler called Alan Breck.
All that David wants is to return to his Uncle's home and exact revenge, but the path that leads him there will be fraught with terror and danger.
Join David as he fights to survive on a desert island, and journeys through the wild Highlands of Scotland encountering notorious outlaws and other strange characters.
Written by the author of Treasure Island (also published by Campfire), Kidnapped has enchanted readers since its first publication in 1886. Based on a true story, Robert Louis Stevenson's timeless adventure classic is now available to readers of all ages.
Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1850. Stevenson's most famous work is the classic pirate tale Treasure Island, which was published in 1883. Stevenson later created an infamous, but very intriguing, character in The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, published in 1886. In 1887, Stevenson headed for America. It was soon after this move that he took up his pen for The Master of Ballantrae, a novel which is considered one of his best works. Stevenson died in 1894. While best known for writing tales of action and adventure, he is also remembered as an accomplished poet and essayist.
"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."
