Outlander Chapter 18

By Diana Gabaldon

Chapter 18

Raiders in the Rocks

  • The whole group leaves the inn the next day, and Claire is given a dirk to protect herself.
  • They're attacked by raiders one night, and Claire hides between two rocks.
  • Dougal and Jamie battle the raiders and suffer only minor injuries, which Claire bandages.
  • Fighting gives Jamie's kilt a little tent, so he and Claire have a roll in the hay (or the heather, since this is Scotland) in the night.
  • The next day, they teach Claire how to fight with a knife. Not a gun though. Guns are for men only.
