"Also does this book include the new essay, a new map, a CD with Outlander the musical, like the one from Amazon?"
Entering into the world of 'Outlander 20yrs. & 5 months late, this book was worth the wait. Catching the Starz series also a few months late ON DEMAND, I became instantly hooked, understanding the fascination by millions of readers & viewers. To any newcomers, this 20th Anniversary Edition is the one to get. The book is absolutely beautifully bound, attractive to a fault, rich pages, excellent sized print including an attached red book mark ribbon. The new author's note makes it more personable & the enclosed CD sampler of the Outlander Musical is a joyful plus. Overall it's such a handsome book, one to be cherished with great pride. I highly recommend this edition for your own library....

Suddenly she is a Sassenachan outlanderin a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.
