The central character and narrator is 17-year-old David Balfour. His parents have recently died, and he is out to make his way in the world. 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. His uncle is also miserly, living on "parritch" and small ale, and the House of Shaws itself is partially unfinished and somewhat ruinous.Ebenezer asks David to get a chest from the top of a tower in the house but refuses to provide a lamp or candle. David is forced to scale the stairs in the dark and realises that not only is the tower unfinished in some places, but the steps simply end abruptly and fall into an abyss. David concludes that his uncle intended for him to have an "accident" so as not to have to give over his nephew's inheritance. En juin 1751 en Écosse, le jeune David Balfour suit les dernières volontés de son défunt père et prend la route du château de Shaws où demeure son dernier parent vivant, son oncle Ebenezer. David se rend bien vite compte que ce dernier tente de le spolier de son héritage, n'hésitant pas pour cela à attenter à sa vie. Mais avant d'avoir pu faire quoi que ce soit, David est enlevé et embarqué de force à bord du Covenant, un brick en partance pour Les Carolines. Voué à être vendu comme esclave dans une plantation, les jours s'écoulent à bord du navire et tout espoir semble perdu pour David. Le destin place alors sur sa route un allié providentiel en la personne d'Alan Breck Stewart, un fier Highlander jacobite, naufragé que le Covenant recueille à son bord.
