Alan, cried I, what makes ye so good to me? What makes ye care for such a thankless fellow?Deed and I dont know, said Alan. For just precisely what I thought I liked about ye, was that ye never quarrelled--and now I like ye better!Historical fiction, an adventure story, but also a great buddy story. The plot follows young David, who is cheated out of his inheritance by a greedy uncle, and kidnapped into servitude on a sailing ship.

The ship hits a small boat during a fog and picks up Alan Breck Stewart, a renegade Highlander. Set in the period following the failed Scottish rebellion, a reader not well-versed in the history might have difficulty following the politics and the dialect of the Scots. Its a grand adventure story, though, with the friendship between the two quite different main characters providing light-hearted moments, narrow escapes, and a fitting, but bittersweet ending.
