Stevenson's brooding historical romance demonstrates his most abiding theme--the elemental struggle between good and evil--as it unfolds against a hauntingly beautiful Scottish landscape, amid the fierce loyalties and violent enmities that characterized Scottish history. When two brothers attempt to split their loyalties between the warring factions of the 1745 Jacobite rising, one family finds itself tragically divided. Stevenson's remarkably vivid characterizations create an acutely moving, psychologically complex work; as Andrea Barrett points out in her Introduction, "The brothers' characters, not the historical facts, shape the drama."

Nobody can do bad guys like Robert Louis Stevenson. Case in point - Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Treasure Island, and this one, The Master of Ballantrae. If you've never read a RLS book, then this is a good one to start with. The book begins with the beginning of the Jacobite Rebellion in Scotland mid 18th Century. The Ballantrae family decides to hedge its bets with this rebellion. The eldest bother James will fight for the Stuarts, and the younger brother Henry, will remain loyal to the reigning king, and manage the family estates. Thus begins a lifelong animosity and hatred between the two brothers. This is a book that takes us to France, India, America and of course Scotland. It is as good a psychological expose as you'll find. It has a truly evil character who is incapable of human emotions. The story is told by Mr. Mackeller, Henry's general factotum and secretary. And all of this is told in the most hauntingly beautiful language you have ever encountered. For his day RLS was well-ahead of the pack in showing no compunction in illustrating so many wrong-doings and family scandals and secrets. He was a tell-it-as-it-is type of author. I highly recommend any of his books. To my great delight, I had this one in my own library, and it got lost in the shuffle. Thank goodness I did a cleanup in my bookshelves. ( )

A great and intriguing story. The story of a good hearted younger brother who is shadowed and ghosted by his truant, heavy left handed and evil older brother. It was heartbreaking to see how the adversity he faced came from not only the brother but those around him and in his life. Mackellar is commendable and staunch. How he tolerated the Master is beyond me. ( )

This is a dramatic account of a desperate rivalry between two brothers of the Scottish Durie family, James, the eponymous Master, and his younger sibling Henry. Their antipathy is sparked off when, during the 1745 rebellion of Bonnie Prince Charlie, their father decides to hedge his bets by having one son side with the rebellion and the other side with British King George II. James, despite being the eldest and the heir to his father's estates, gets to be the one to support the rebellion, but is more motivated by mischief making than political principle. He regularly returns to taunt his brother and father, considering himself abandoned when Henry inherits the title after he is believed to be dead. The struggle eventually costs their father his life, and the struggle transfers over the Atlantic to New York where it ends in double tragedy in the American wilderness. A good read, lacking the overall impact and colourful characters of Treasure Island, but probably a better structured novel. ( )
