Tá An Fuadach le Robert Louis Stevenson ar cheann de na húrscéalta is mó cáil riamh.

Seo é scéal scleondrach corraitheach an dílleachta Dáibhí Balfúr, fear óg a bhfuil a uncail Eibinéasar ag iarraidh é a mharú agus a oidhreacht a thógáil dó féin. Is é a chairdeas leis an claimhteoir Seacaibíteach Ailean Breac Stíobhaird a thugann slán é - ach is fear é siúd a bhfuil an tóir amuigh ag na Sasanaigh air agus, ina chuideachta, caithfidh Dáibhí dul i mbaol a bháis i nGaeltacht na hAlban agus na Cótaí Dearga sna sála orthu.

Aithnítear An Fuadach go forleathan mar an t-úrscéal is fearr de chuid Stevenson, leabhar ar ar thug Henry James ‘coróin agus príomhbhua an ealaíontóra’.

San aistriúchán seo le Darach Ó Scolaí, tá an t-úrscéal a scríobhadh in 1886 curtha in oiriúint do léitheoirí an lae inniu, agus é maisithe le pictiúir ó eagrán 1913 den leabhar le N.C. Wyeth.

Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson is one of the best known adventure novels ever written.

This is the exciting story of David Balfour, a young man whose uncle Ebeneazer wishes to kill and to steal his inheritance. Through his friendship with Jacobite swordsman Alan Breck Steward he escapes the fate his uncle had in store for him - only to find that he must cross the Scottish Highlands in the company of a rebel who has a price on his head, with the red coats on their heels.

Kidnapped is widely recognised as Stevenson’s greatest novel, and was referred to by Henry James as ' the particular crown and triumph of the artist’..

This beautiful translation and abridged for modern-day readers by Darach Ó Scolaí is accompanied by NC Wyeth’s renowned Illustrations from the 1913 Edition.
