Description
#1 New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon has captivated millions of readers with her critically acclaimed Outlander novels, the inspiration for the Starz original series. From the moment Claire Randall stepped through a standing stone circle and was thrown back in time to the year 1743--and into a world that threatens life, limb, loyalty, heart, soul, and everything else Claire has--readers have been hungry to know everything about this world and its inhabitants, particularly a Scottish soldier named Jamie Fraser.   In this beautifully illustrated compendium of all things Outlandish, Gabaldon covers the first four novels of the main series, including:   * full synopses of Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, and Drums of Autumn * a complete listing of the characters (fictional and historical) in the first four novels in the series, as well as family trees and genealogical notes * a comprehensive glossary and pronunciation guide to Gaelic terms and usage * the fully explicated Gabaldon Theory of Time Travel * frequently asked questions to the author and her (sometimes surprising) answers * an annotated bibliography * essays about medicine and magic in the eighteenth century, researching historical fiction, creating characters, and more * professionally cast horoscopes for Jamie and Claire   For anyone who wants to spend more time with the Outlander characters and the world they inhabit, Diana Gabaldon here opens a door through the standing stones and offers a guided tour of what lies within.
