This is a complete guide to Books 5-8 of the internationally bestselling Outlander series.
Written with Gabaldon's signature wit and intelligence, this compendium is bursting with generous commentary and juicy insider details, including: a complete chronology of the series thus far; full synopses of A Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, An Echo in the Bone, and Written in My Own Heart's Blood; recaps of the Lord John Grey novels: Lord John and the Private Matter, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, Lord John and the Hand of Devils, and The Scottish Prisoner; a who's who of the cast of Outlander characters, cross-referenced by book; and, detailed maps and floor plans.
It also offers a bibliographic guide to research sources; essays on subjects as wide ranging as Outlandish controversies regarding sex and violence, the unique responsibilities of a writer of historical fiction, and Gabaldon's writing process; a guided tour of the clothes, food, and music of the eighteenth century; a Scottish glossary and pronunciation guide; personal photos from the author taken on the set of the Outlander series. As entertaining, sweeping, and addictive as the series itself, this second volume of The Outlandish Companion is a one (or two)-of-a-kind gift from an incomparable author.
