He is given a letter by the minister of Essendean, Mr. Campbell, to be delivered to the House of Shaws in Cramond, where David's uncle, Ebenezer Balfour, lives.David arrives at the ominous House of Shaws and is confronted by his paranoid Uncle Ebenezer, who is armed with a blunderbuss. His uncle is also miserly, living on "parritch" and small ale, and the House of Shaws itself is partially unfinished and somewhat ruinous. AuthorRobert Louis Balfour Stevenson (13 November 1850 - 3 December 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, musician and travel writer. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Kidnapped, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and A Child's Garden of Verses. Stevenson was a literary celebrity during his lifetime, and now ranks as the 26th most translated author in the world. His works have been admired by many other writers, including Jorge Luis Borges, Bertolt Brecht, Marcel Proust, Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry James, Cesare Pavese, Emilio Salgari, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Vladimir Nabokov, J. M. Barrie, and G. K. Chesterton, who said that Stevenson "seemed to pick the right word up on the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins".Stevenson was visiting a cousin in England in late 1873 when he met two people who became very important to him--Sidney Colvin and Fanny (Frances Jane) Sitwell. Sitwell was a 34-year-old woman with a son, who was separated from her husband. She attracted the devotion of many who met her, including Colvin, who eventually married her in 1901. Stevenson was also drawn to her, and they kept up a heated correspondence over several years in which he wavered between the role of a suitor and a son (he addressed her as "Madonna"). Colvin became Stevenson's literary adviser and was the first editor of Stevenson's letters after his death. Soon after their first meeting, he had placed Stevenson's first paid contribution in The Portfolio an essay titled "Roads". Stevenson was soon active in London literary life, becoming acquainted with many of the writers of the time, including Andrew Lang, Edmund Gosse, and Leslie Stephen, the editor of the Cornhill Magazine who took an interest in Stevenson's work. Stephen in turn introduced him to a more important friend while visiting Edinburgh in 1875.

Sein ganzes Leben hat der 16-jährige adelige David Balfour von Shaws in ärmlichen Verhältnissen im Wald von Ettrick – in einem nicht benannten Dorf in den Scottish Borders, also im schottischen Unterland – verbracht. Von dort begibt sich der verwaiste Junge auf seiner Odyssee per pedes in die Welt hinaus – zunächst zu Pfarrer Campbell in die nahegelegene fiktive Ortschaft Essendean. Auf Geheiß des Pfarrers will David in dem zwei Tagesmärsche entfernten Cramond sein Erbe antreten. Auf dem Wege über Colinton erreicht er den Onkel Ebenezer Balfour von Shaws. Dieser heimtückische Verwandte will ihn loswerden; ihn kurzerhand als weißen Sklaven nach Karolina verkaufen. Also lädt der Bösewicht den Neffen zu einem Spaziergang nach Queensferry ein. Gewaltsam auf die Handels­brigg Covenant von Dysart des Kapitäns Elias Hoseason verfrachtet, geht die Fahrt um die Nordspitze Schottlands herum in Richtung Übersee.
