Reviews
"This remarkable novel opens at full gallop and never slows. Adamson has seamlessly merged a compelling narrative with poetic language to create a work that is full of beauty and heart and wonder."--Ron Rash, author of SAINTS AT THE RIVER and SERENA
"A remarkable first novel, full of verve, beautifully written, and with all the panache of a great adventure."--Michael Ondaatje
"THE OUTLANDER deserves to be read twice, first for the plot and the complex characters which make this a page-turner of the highest order, and then a second time, slowly, to savor the marvel of Gil Adamson's writing. This novel is a true wonder."--Ann Patchett
