With oodles of steamy romance, paranormal time travel, adventure, and much more, Outlander is sweeping the nation. From over a dozen volumes to its newest incarnation as a breathtaking Starz show, it continues to delight, even with subtle, clever changes. But what was life really like then - from kilts and bagpipes to selkies and the fair folk? Who was Bonnie Prince Charlie and why was his campaign so disastrous for the Highlanders?

  • 4 out of 5 stars

What disappointed you about History, Homages and the Highlands?

The narrator did not help the content. It was very hard to listen to.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Fiona Thraille?

Porter, her voice is linked with the novels
