FREE Kindle eBooks Created with Instant Ebook
On this page you will find books that are FREE. No cost. That's because they are now in the public domain in the US, the US copyright having expired. In our experience many free ebooks available on the web are poorly formatted. These books are different; they have been created using Instant Ebook software and have, for example, properly functioning Tables of Contents (sometimes referred to as 'active') and section navigation.

'Kidnapped' is the more famous of these Robert Louis Stevenson stories but 'Catriona' continues where 'Kidnapped' leaves off - as modern blurb writers might say 'The Continuing Adventures of David Balfour'. David Balfour is an eighteenth century Scottish country boy who seeks out his extended family when his widower father dies. He becomes involved in the politics of the aftermath of the last Jacobite rebellion, the '45.
