Kidnapped is a memoir of the activities of David Balfour in the year 1751. Young Balfour is cheated of his inheritance by his malicious Uncle Ebenezer who has him kidnapped and put on a ship bound for the Carolinas. Not many days underway, the ship runs into a small boat in the fog. Only one man is rescued from the smaller vessel. He is Alan Breck, a Scotsman returning from political exile in France. Balfour and Breck are thrown together on their voyage, and thus begins a tale of events which includes shipwreck, murder, flight and intrigue.
