"Through The Stones" is an illustrated companion and guide to the author's popular series of Scottish, historical fantasies, chronicling the adventures of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser. The text features maps, illustrations of Highland weaponary, jewelry and buildings, as well as family trees of the Frasers, Randalls and MacKenzies, glossaries and pronunciation guides to the Gaelic, and other non English terms in the books, and detailed synopses of the four novels. In addition, this companion volume includes a section containing the anwers to the questions most frequently asked by readers (eg "Is there another novel in the series?" and "Who killed Jack Randall?") and a number of essays by the author on the origins, and backgrounds of the fictional and historical characters, medicine and magic in the 18th century, the art and science of researching historical fiction and how to cure impotence by rubbing the male parts with a diamond! Also included are an annotated bibliography, appendices on learning Gaelic, genealogical research, Celtic discography and excerpts from the next book in the series, "The Fiery Cross".

From the Author:

This is the UK edition of THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION
This book is the UK edition of THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION (the first book of the series is called OUTLANDER in the US, but CROSS STITCH in the UK (as the British editors said, "To us, an outlander is somebody from South Africa or Australia, not Scotland!" ). Ergo, OUTLANDISH COMPANION wouldn't really mean much to the UK audience, so this companion is titled THROUGH THE STONES. While it does have a different cover design (and very nice, too!), the insides of the book--text, illustrations, and layout--should be identical. Whichever title you select, I hope you enjoy it! --D. Gabaldon
